Following the temporary closure of the Irving S. Gilmore Music Library due to last week's flood in SML, we are happy to announce that the Music Library will reopen at noon today (Wednesday 11th).
Circulation and reserve services will continue to be available in the lecture hall, as they have been for the last couple of days, but readers will now also have access to all public areas of the Music Library via the staircases and the elevator within the library. The first floor restrooms will also be accessible again.
Media materials (CDs, DVDs, etc.) will remain inaccessible for the time being.
Readers must enter the Music Library via the corridor that is located behind the guard station at the Wall Street entrance. Signage will help direct patrons. Security guards will be present at the Wall Street entrance during music library hours in the evenings. For opening times: http://www.library.yale.edu/musiclib/hours.htm
The Gilmore Music Library celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi with Verdi and His Singers. The exhibit features five items in Verdi’s hand: a quotation from Otello and four letters. It also includes a caricature of Verdi by Enrico Caruso, a Verdi score annotated by Robert Shaw, several photographs, and a variety of other materials. Many of the items are associated with Victor Maurel, a baritone who sang major roles in the premieres of Otello and Falstaff. Learn more here...
