Performing Arts Library

The Mabel Smith Douglass Library houses the university's fine arts collection and features exhibition space for student and faculty work as well as for invitational exhibits.

The Blanche and Irving Laurie Music Library contains approximately 31,000 books, 46,000 scores, and 40,000 recordings, as well as an extensive spoken-word collection.

The Media Center archives more than 22,000 recordings and has playback facilities for a variety of media formats. The nearby graduate seminar room has quality playback equipment. Many class assignments are also available online.

The Sharon A. Fordham Multimedia Lab Classroom is a joint venture between the Music Department, Dance Department, and the Library. The lab houses 17 iMac workstations (16 for students and 1 for an instructor) with a wide range of hardware and software for music/video production. The Multimedia Lab Classroom is open the same hours as the Media Center, and is available for public use whenever classes are not being held. Additionally, the library has created the new Fordham Commons, which houses 13 Mac Pro workstations, is available for use whenever the library building is open, and has the same software and hardware as the computers in the lab
