Many CDs and vinyl LPs have liner notes containing useful information about the works and performers on the recording. Either search our streaming audio databases or look up and request a sound recording from the Library Catalog to read them.

Once you find an opera in Opera in Video (Alexander Street Press), look under the "Details" tab for supplemental materials.

Once you find a sound recording in Naxos Music Library, look for the "Booklet" icon for liner notes.

Music Library Home Page and Library Catalog

Search the UNC Library catalog here for books, e-books, recordings, streamed recordings, and much more. Search in ALL FIELDS and then refine your results by selecting from the facets (online, resource type, location, etc.) on the left of the results page.

The Music Library owns thousands of physical recordings, books and scores as well as online materials.  You can come to the music Library to browse and check out items or request them through the library catalog and pick them up at any library on campus. If you need a media drive to play CDs, you can request one for in-library use as well. We also have playback equipment for vinyl LPs and CDs in the Music Library.

Additional resources can be found on the Music Library home page.

Contact Music Library staff at for research or other assistance.

Subject Searches in the Library Catalog Related to Spectacle

Here are some links to additional resources in the catalog. They are only examples of other catalog searches you might want to make. You can also perform an All Fields search in the catalog on the name of a composer, artist, work, place, etc.

You can use some of the same terminology when searching for journal articles.
