Starting points for research in music

Arts Media Center (AMC)

Sound recordings--on CDs, LPs, laserdiscs, and other formats--are housed in the Arts Media Center (AMC) at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts.

The AMC also has the equipment to play the recordings, plus music workstations with MIDI keyboards, Digidesign M-Boxes with Protools LE. 

Borrowing privileges for the AMC materials are not the same as those for materials in the UCI Libraries.

UCI students, faculty, staff, and the general public are welcome in the AMC. The AMC is about a 10-min. walk from Langson Library in AITR 290.

Physical Audiovisual Resources at UCI LIbraries


All of the collections in the UCI Libraries and in the AMC can be searched in UC Library Search, the UCI Libraries' online catalog.  In Advanced Keyword searching, scroll down to see optional limits, such as Material Type: Music Score; Language; and Location (including CTSA Media Ctr). 


The Arts Media Center (AMC), located in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, houses CDs and LPs (vinyl) and the equipment to play them.  The AMC also has equipment and software available to all Arts Majors.  Note: The Arts Media Center hours are shorter than Langson Library.  


The Multimedia Resources Center (MRC), located in the Science Library, houses the Libraries' video collections--audio collections are in the CTSA Arts Media Center.  UCI undergraduates must view the videos in the MRC, which do not circulate to undergraduates.  Faculty and graduate students may check out videos to preview at home.  The MRC also has audiovisual and computing equipment that can be checked out to UCI students, faculty, and staff.  The loan periods range from 2-48 hours for video cameras, boom mic kits, digital sound recorders, headphones, laptops, and other hardware.  There are at least 2 Yamaha 510 keyboards that must be used on-site.
