Dedicated in 1998, the Stan Getz Library and Media Center is committed to collecting and providing access to both electronic and print resources for music study. By providing a wide variety of resources and services, the library supports the research, scholarly, and creative pursuits of Berklee College of Music. In addition, current topics are explored through events hosted by the library and led by faculty members, staff, and special guests. The Stan Getz Library is open to all students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni.
The library provides access to printed materials relating to, and in support of, the curriculum at Berklee.
