Books as well as scores are arranged on the shelves according to the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System. This is an alpha-numeric system used by most academic libraries. The system breaks down knowledge into twenty-two categories, or classes.
M is the classification for Music
Basic subclasses include:
M = music scores
ML = literature on music
MT = instruction and study
You can become more familiar with how music is arranged at the library by looking at the handy outline below, which breaks down the subclasses even further.
Wayne State University Libraries have many books relevant to the study of Music.
Much of the book collection is located on the 3rd floor of Purdy Kresge Library.
These books can be accessed ON or OFF campus.
