Founded just over eighteen years ago and named for one of the University of Utah’s first music graduates, the Emma Ray Riggs McKay Music Library is nestled in the first floor of the School of Music.

They come to check out scores, study in our beautiful space, produce music in our brand-new music technology studio, or browse through our excellent collections, which embrace a wide variety of materials, from the latest recordings and publications by our faculty to our unique collection of vinyl jazz records.
