About the Music and Dance Library
Located on the upper level of the south addition to Murphy Hall (Room 240), the Thomas Gorton Music and Dance Library contains over 10,000 scores, books, sound recordings, videos, microforms, and serials, making it one of the leading music collections in the Great Plains region. The library opened in June 2000, integrating music and dance materials from the former Thomas Gorton Music Library, Anschutz Library, and Watson Library. The library is named for Thomas Gorton (1910-1977), who served as Dean of the School of Fine Arts from 1950 to 1975 and KU Professor of Music History from 1975 until his retirement in 1977.
