System Coordination

A. Collection Development within the UW Library System

The Head of the Music Library (music selector) has primary responsibility for all areas of printed music scores and music books.  The sound recording selector is responsible for collecting media materials in the Music Library.  The Head of the Music Library is also responsible for acquiring books on music for the Odegaard Undergraduate Library and the Allen Library.

Both the music selector and the sound recordings selector coordinate with various appropriate selectors in the library system in their acquisitions.


B. Cooperative Loan Arrangements

The UW is a member of the Orbis-Cascade Alliance. UW faculty, staff and students may request materials from other Orbis-Cascade Alliance members through the UW Libraries Catalog.
