The Music & Performing Arts Library has thousands of recordings available to stream online or play on DVD, CD, and LP!
To search for audio and video in the catalog, start with a keyword search for a specific performer, composer, style, or song title in the library catalog and use the "Material Type" filter on the advanced search screen to restrict your search to "Sound Recordings" or "Video/Film" depending on your needs.
When you click into the item records for different materials, check the material's location and format information to see if it is available to stream or if it exists in physical form on DVD, CD, or LP. For more help distinguishing identifying format information, see our Introduction to Audio & Video Formats.
