Music Library

The Eric Rath Music Library, located on the first floor of Presser Hall, contains books about music, scores, and CDs. You will also find a listening station, with plenty of room for viewing scores and taking notes.

Using OneSearch to Find Materials

The catalog for all library materials is OneSearch. To limit your results to items in the Music Library, first enter your search and then use the left menu to limit to Library – Hollins Music Library.

Note that books about music and other subjects, such as a sociology of blues music, or the history of Broadway theater, will also be found in the Wyndham Robertson Library; these will be excluded when you limit your search to the Music Library only.

Using OneSearch to Request Materials

Current Hollins students, faculty and staff can log into OneSearch and use the “Request” button to have books and other Music Library materials delivered to Wyndham Robertson Library. When the item you requested is ready to be picked up, you will get an email from the library.
