The Music & Media Collection at Duane G. Meyer Library exists primarily to support the undergraduate and graduate curriculums in music, dance, theater, and film at Missouri State University. We strive to maintain a well-balanced and comprehensive core book and score collection within the library, while also selecting and providing access to remote and global resources that support music research and performance needs throughout our university and regional community. "Media" formats include physical objects such as important historical LPs, compact discs, DVDs, microform documents, musical instruments, etc. as well as streaming audiovisual databases.
