Music Lab

The Crouch Library Music Lab is a specialized instructional technology center for music applications. The Lab is located in the Listening/Viewing Center of the Crouch Fine Arts Library. It is available for use during all regular Library hours, except when it is reserved for a class or seminar.  A valid Bear ID and password are required to log in to the computers, so they are not available to library guests.
