Welcome to the Crouch Fine Arts Library at Baylor University. This guide is intended as an orientation to the Library for new music and art students. Please take a look around here and stop by and visit us in the Library. We're always happy to help with any library or research questions.

We have books, music scores, periodicals, CDs, DVDs, and other materials that you can use for research and enjoyment. Most of our materials, including CDs and DVDs, can be checked out of the Library (bring your Baylor ID card!).

We have a variety of group and private study areas, wired and wireless computer access, a 12-station iMac computer lab with MIDI keyboards, as well as stations for listening to or viewing the Library's audio/video collections. (Laptops are available for check-out in the Garden Level Study Commons.) We also have two seminar rooms where classes meet.  One of these can be reserved for group study sessions; see the Service Desk for details and reservations.
