Welcome to the NU Libraries Music page.

Get Started with Your Research:



New England Conservatory Loan Policy

Notice: The Blumenthal Family Library is closed until further notice. This includes all self-service technology such as printing, photocopying, scanning, etc. Library staff, however, are working remotely so please feel free to contact us using the library staff directory.

Declared music majors and NU Music Department faculty members, whether full-time or part-time, are eligible to borrow materials from the libraries at New England Conservatory of Music.  You must first register at the Blumenthal Library circulation desk; your names will be checked against the annual list sent by the NU Music Department. Students may not borrow audio-visual materials, but may use them in the Blumenthal Library.  Faculty may borrow sound recordings for a maximum period of one week.

Use of the NEC library by NU students and faculty is governed by the regulations applicable to NEC students and faculty.  Library materials charged out to NU borrowers are subject to immediate recall if needed by any recognized NEC performance group or for class reserves. Failure to notify the Spaulding Library circulation desk of changes of address or phone will result in cancellation of your borrowing and listening/viewing privileges.
