Most of the items in this collection are on display across from the Circulation Desk in the Cravens Library, but don’t forget that we additionally have over a thousand classical, jazz, and traditional music CDs out of sight behind the Desk that can be identified through TOPCAT. All materials may be checked out at the Cravens Library Circulation Desk.

Also take note of our steadily growing DVD movies collection, accessible at the same location!
