The assigned carrels on the lower level are available to graduate students involved in intensive library research and study. Assignments are based on the following order of priority:
- Doctoral students in Music Education, Musicology and ethnomusicology
- Doctoral students in Composition and Performance
- Masters students in Music Education, Musicology and ethnomusicology
- Masters students in Composition and Performance.
Within this structure, carrels are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Please do not request a carrel if you are going to use it only occasionally! Some carrels may have two persons assigned to them.
Carrel reserve means convenience of location: you may keep material of particular interest at your desk for a term (more precisely, the loan period is set at 90 days). Items on carrel reserve are, however, subject to removal by other readers. It is inadvisable, for example, to attempt to reserve undergraduate textbooks, or vocal scores of current local opera productions
