Gordon Erickson Music Library
The Gordon Erickson Music Library, part of UND’s Department of Music, is the most extensive music library in North Dakota, the surrounding states, and northwestern Minnesota. The library houses a large collection of sound recordings, musical scores, reference materials, audio-visual items, and reserve titles.
Gifts from KFJM public radio, faculty, and other donors have resulted in a collection of more than 9,000 LP recordings representing music of all styles and periods, as well as 900+ tape cassettes showcasing UND recital recordings. The Gordon Erickson collection of orchestral and operatic scores and parts is a valuable resource for students and faculty alike. A generous endowment from the estate of the late Edna Ullyot of Langdon has provided for the continued development and expansion of the score and CD recording holdings of the Music Library. We currently have more than 3000 CDs with full bibliographical description in addition to 5000 recordings gifted from Northern Lights Public Radio.
Music listening facilities are available in the Music Library and patrons are also able to listen via wireless network services.
In the event that the Music Library is closed during normal hours, music books may also be returned at the Chester Fritz Library.
