Because of the pandemic, our special collections are currently open only to Yale students in residence, faculty, and staff. When circumstances return to normal, they will again become available to researchers from around the world.
Also because of the pandemic, researchers will now use our special collections in the Manuscripts & Archives Reading Room (just down the hall from the Music Library in Sterling Memorial Library). For information about services in the MSSA Reading Room (and to reserve a seat), see their guide.
Music Library staff are available to advise researchers; contact us at email@example.com.
Some of our archival collections have not yet been fully processed, so they don’t appear in the Finding Aid Database. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few of the Music Library's most important holdings are shelved across the street, at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. To study these items, please consult the Beinecke Library directly.
