About the Oberlin Conservatory Library: The Oberlin Conservatory
Library is one of three branch libraries on the Oberlin campus, and
the only one to offer a complete array of library services providing
all public and technical services as well as collection development of
scores, sound recordings, books, and journals. The Conservatory
Library currently employs three professional librarians, the special
collections curator, paraprofessional staff, and approximately 10 FTE
student assistant staff. The Conservatory Library’s general collection
exceeds 250,000 books, scores, sound recordings and serials
subscriptions representative of all historical periods of Western art
music as well as world, jazz, folk, and popular music.
President Barack Obama awarded the 2009 National Medal of the Arts to
the Oberlin Conservatory in recognition of the wealth and depth of its
creative expressions. This spring marks another milepost in
Conservatory history when a fourth building is added to the complex.
Noted for its gold LEED standard design and as the new home for the

Judith Kohl Building will also house the Conservatory Library’s
special collections, including: the Violin Society of America/H. K.
Goodkind Collection of books on all aspects of stringed instruments;

Neumann collection of jazz recordings and memorabilia.

About Oberlin: Oberlin College, an independent coeducational
institution with 2,800 undergraduates, is one of America’s most
distinguished liberal arts colleges, deeply committed to academic and
artistic excellence, social justice, and service learning. Founded in
1833, its heritage is one of respect for the individual and active
engagement with the larger society. It was the first coeducational
institution to grant bachelor's degrees to women and the first to
adopt a policy of admitting students of color; the College was also
among the first to prohibit discrimination based on sexual
orientation. Oberlin has been the source of more Ph.D.s than any other
liberal arts college. Its Conservatory of Music is internationally
renowned for preparing students for careers as professional musicians
and music educators. The College's size, residential character,
diversity, and selectivity create an atmosphere enhancing intellectual
and personal growth. More information about Oberlin College can be
found at http://www.oberlin.edu.
Oberlin, Ohio (pop. 8,600), is a diverse community with a vibrant
cultural life located 35 miles from Cleveland. In 2004, The National
Trust for Historic Preservation named Oberlin as one of 12

architecture, public spaces, and cultural offerings.
