Howard-Tilton Memorial Library

As Tulane University's main library, the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library supports the university's undergraduate and graduate programs in the humanities, social sciences, and science and engineering. It also is a major cultural resource for researchers and scholars from throughout the Louisiana-Gulf Coast region. Its unique collections in areas such as Latin American studies, jazz and New Orleans history often draw researchers from around the globe.

Music and Media Collection

The Music & Media Center on the fourth floor of Howard-Tilton Memorial Library houses thousands of CDs and music DVDs. Music reference books, complete works, and rare printed items are located in the Music & Media Center as well and our knowledgeable staff can assist with any music-related questions you may have. Four computers, a modest study space, and a listening station are also available here. Music books and scores can be found on the third floor of the library; you may find some books and scores a little worse for wear, please bear with us as we finish up our Katrina Recovery process. An array of music databases and the music-writing software MuseScore are available from any computer in the library.

William Ransom Hogan Jazz Archive

The jazz archive is a renowned resource for New Orleans jazz research. The collection includes oral histories, recorded music, photographs and film, and sheet music and orchestrations. It also houses files of manuscripts, clippings and bibliographic references.
