History of the Music Library

The Music Library is one of six branch libraries in the UNL Libraries' system. It was established as a branch in the Westbrook Music Building in 1980, in part due to the efforts of the director of the School of Music, Dr.Raymond Haggh. The Music Library honored him in 1997 by naming the library's main room the Raymond H. Haggh Reading Room.
