The Music Collection is one of the largest classical music collections in Australia. It is comprised of reference works, books, journals, CDs, DVDs, LPs, collected editions and historical sets (monumenta), and performance and study scores.
This collection brings together the former collections of the Elder Music Library. In 2002 during its previous incarnation, the Performing Arts Library, the Elder Music Library amalgamated with the Barr Smith Library Music Collection, the Fulton Library of the South Australian College of Advanced Education, and the Flinders Street School of Music.
The Music Collection is held on Level1 South of the Barr Smith Library. Facilities include: insulated listening booths with specialist audio equipment and computers with Sibelius software.
Access is also available to a large range of e-resources via Library Search or the Music Subject Guide.
