Come one, come all!
You are welcome to the Music Open House at the Van Wylen Library! On September 12, from 10:00 am to noon, the second floor of the library will be hosting a ‘Music Open House’, located near the music collection. This past summer marked the move of Hope College’s music library from the Nykerk Hall of Music to the Van Wylen Library in preparation for the construction of the new Center for Musical Arts. The purpose of this event is to educate anyone who is interested in the resources the music collection has to offer. It will give the music department and any others the chance to become savvy with the design of this newly relocated music collection.
Several music-related collections and databases can be found on the Music Research Guide, through the library’s website. For example, Naxos Music Library gives an online variety of music, ranging from classical to folk, from Naxos and Marco Polo recordings. In addition, Grove Music Online conducts music research and offers full text from numerous musical scholars all around the world. Last, but not least, there is the Library Music Source, which is accurately described as the largest library of sheet music ever.
Stop by any time and join us in checking out the new music library!
