University of Melbourne Sound Recordings Database

Can't find it on the Library Catalogue?

The Sound Recordings Database is an index to CDs and vinyl recordings.This database is no longer being added to. We suggest that you use the library catalogue, however this database is particularly useful for locating vinyl recordings.

The prefix before the call number tells you about the format:

CD = Compact Disc, ask at the Service Desk
B = Vinyl Disc, ask at the Service Desk.
No prefix = Vinyl Disc, shelved by the library windows.
CC = Audio Cassette, shelved in the Video Room.
