Viewing and visiting the collection

Because the majority of the LAMC's holdings are available through the William and Gayle Cook Music Library, if you are interested in browsing or researching our collection, you should begin with a search through Indiana University’s online library catalog (IUCAT).

If you are interested in viewing items not available through the William and Gayle Cook Music Library, we invite you to visit the collection by appointment. To inquire about such materials or schedule a visit, please email
