Blair Academy Students and Families: General Information

This guide provides information on collections and services offered by the Wilson Music Library to Pre-College students and their families.

Library Information for the Fall, 2020 Semester:

Access to the Blair building will be limited to Vanderbilt University students, faculty, and staff. Since Blair Academy students will not be able to enter the Wilson Music Library, we will be offering contactless pickup of library materials and equipment. You can request scores, books, recordings, and equipment by clicking on the Request button in the library catalog. You will need to login to your library account to see the request button. Pickups will be scheduled, and items will be placed on a cart outside the building. A full list of the equipment available for checkout can be found on the Equipment for Loan Research Guide. 

Blair Academy students can register for library cards using this online form. You will still receive a physical card in the mail. Be sure to write down the username and password that you select for your library account so you can log in. 

Reference service and instruction are available remotely this semester. You can live chat with a librarian from the Music Library's homepage between 8 am and 6 pm, Monday through Friday. You can also schedule a Zoom appointment with Sara Manus directly from her profile box on the right side of this page.

Requesting Items for Pickup from the Music Library:

Free Music Resources:

New York Philharmonic Kidzone - Play games, learn about composers, performers, and instruments, and build your own instrument in the instrument lab.

Classics for Kids - Weekly lessons on different composers, games, and worksheets. Parents and caregivers can check out the "helpful resources" section.
