EVANSTON, Ill. --- Good news for music lovers! Starting this week, Northwestern community members can check out CDs from the Music Library's holdings of nearly 30,000 CDs. While the collection's special strength is in classical recordings, most major styles and artists of jazz and world music are included, along with a collection of musical theatre.
Students, faculty and staff now can borrow up to five CDs at a time for two weeks. Faculty can request that CDs are delivered directly to their offices. Previously CDs were available for use only in the library's Listening Center.
Although the Music Library collects current popular music only selectively, some recent hits can be found, including CDs by Jay-Z and Radiohead. Many older recordings also are there, especially those that were musically influential or culturally important, such as Bob Dylan, the Beatles and Stevie Wonder.

"You won't find the latest CD by the Jonas Brothers, at least not yet, but we do have some great Doobie Brothers, Allman Brothers and Everly Brothers," said D.J. Hoek, head of the Music Library. "And when it comes to classical, there probably is little that a music lover won't be able to find."

All Music Library CDs can be located through NUcat, the library's online catalog. For more about the library's borrowing policy, visit the Music Library Web site at www.library.northwestern.edu/music/services.html - CD.
