Music: Find Books

Library of Congress Classification

University libraries typically use the Library of Congress classification rather than the Dewey Decimal System you may be used to. M is the Library of Congress designation for all Music texts. In the Gregg-Graniteville Library, the M's can be found towards the back of the center shelves upstairs near the rear study carrels.
