Finding Resources


The Axinn Library has a large collection of Reference and Circulating material including  books, videos, scores, and  periodicals.   Reference print resources can be found on the Main Floor adjacent to the Reference Desk; while the circulating collection is on the 6th Floor in the M section, cataloged according to the Library of Congress classification system.  Below is a breakdown of music subject areas:

  • M – music scores
  • ML – books of literature on music
  • MT – books of music instruction and study


In addition to the Reference and Circulating Music collections in the Axinn Library, the Music Library's collection of books, scores, periodicals and sound recordings supports the curriculum of the Department of Music and provides material for general use by the Hofstra community.
