“Lets Face the Music, and Dance”- Irving Berlin
Greetings from Miss Emilys’ JukeJoint aka the Emily Fowler Library Music CD collection. This is Chuck Voellinger, your DJ, so to speak. A few things to note:
-We are consolidating some music collections, so you may notice changes to labels on Music CDs and to the headings in the drawers. For example, all music in the Classical genre will be cataloged and searchable that way. We will no longer have the headings, “piano music”, “guitar music”, etc. on the shelves- you may still search for those terms in the catalog, however. For instance, a subject search for “sonatas” will return any items we have that are cataloged with that term but they will all be found on the shelf under the broad category “Classical”. For more information, please contact a staff member if you have questions.
Here are the old collections followed by the corresponding new name. Some have not changed, however.
