About the Library

Established in 2001, McKay Music Library serves the students, faculty, and community of the University of Utah.The Library is named for Emma Ray Riggs McKay (1877-1970), a music student and graduate of The University of Utah. The Library is a component of the School of Music situated in Gardner Hall.
 
McKay provides patrons with digital and analog listening stations and over 30,000 recordings; 20 Mac computer stations outfitted with a wide variety of software, including music notation and music editing softwares; and circulating scores, books, and music periodicals.
 
A technology lab offers students a technologically-advanced environment to perform music and multimedia editing.  Students may independently create, mix, edit, and record electronic and computer music or enroll in music technology courses taught in the lab.
 
Listening stations, private study carrels, the Quinney Reading Area, the Maurice Abravanel Studio, and open study tables allow students to work, read, and listen to music individually or in groups.
