The Thurlow Lieurance Memorial Music Library

The Thurlow Lieurance Memorial Music Library is located in the Music and Languages Innovation Center (MALIC), in Jardine Hall, room 313, along with the Savaiano-Cress Language Lab.  Begun as a departmental collection, the holdings were incorporated in to the University Libraries system in 1981.  The library is named in honor of composer and former dean of the Wichita State University School of Music, Thurlow Lieurance.  The collection consists of scores, sound recordings (compact discs, phonograph records and audio cassettes), music videos, and basic music reference materials. The collection's primary purpose is to support the music curriculum, therefore the acquisition of new materials emphasizes the current areas of study and performance.

The Music/Fine Arts Librarian is available to assist faculty, staff and students, as well as the general public, with their research, and is available for individual or class library instruction by prior arrangement. Please phone (316-978-3029) or e-mail in advance to arrange a mutually convenient time.
