We here at the Music Library would like to welcome you all back for the Fall Semester. We’ve been working hard all summer and there are a few new things we’d like you to know about as you start the school year.
You may have already noticed that we have a new website, which can be found at http://library.sc.edu/p/Music. We hope you enjoy this updated version of our web presence. In addition to continuing to provide access to library materials and electronic resources, our new home page is the place to find out about new projects, services, and events here in the Music Library. You can also come here to discover our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress.
Additionally, we have recently launched a new digital collection–The Tin Pan Alley Collection. This collection focuses on popular sheet music produced in New York from 1890-1922. The themes covered by these songs include love and relationships, World War I, exotic locales, and much, much more. Those who have an interest in commercial illustration won’t be disappointed as the illustrators represented here include Starmer, Barbelle, Rosenbaum Studios, André De Takacs, and Norman Rockwell amongst others. You can view this collection here or you can read a story about the genesis of the collection here.
Finally, late last spring we installed student mailboxes. If you’re a music student and you need to leave books, articles, music, etc. for another student this is a helpful delivery system for you to use. You’ll find the student mailboxes located at near the circulation desk, under the sign with a mailbox on it.
Again, welcome back music students and faculty–we look forward to helping you with your research needs in the coming school year!
