Music Resources: Richard C. Shelley Jazz Collection

Greer Music Library (located on the lower level of Cummings Arts Center) serves the research, information and performance needs of the Department of Music and the entire college community. Visitors are welcome!

The Richard C. Shelley Jazz Collection

The Greer Music Library houses the Richard C. Shelley Jazz Collection, which consists of over 2,000 vinyl recordings of primarily jazz and blues.  The materials were gifted to the library in the 1970's by Mr. Richard C. Shelley, an avid collector.  All of the recordings have been cataloged and are findable in OneSearch, the library's online catalog.  Please ask the staff for assistance.

All of the recordings circulate and may be borrowed for 4 weeks by authorized borrowers.  The Greer Music Library also has turntables available for in-house listening.
