  • When Steve Miller was a UW-Madison student in the early 1960s, Mills Music Library was in Music Hall—along with the School of Music. We don’t know if he ever set foot in that Mills, but we’ll find out tomorrow when he gives a lecture on careers in music in Mills Concert Hall, in the Mead Witter School of Music, at 6pm. The lecture is free and open to the public. Miller is returning to Madison to play a benefit show in Wisconsin Union Theater’s Shannon Hall on Friday, October 20, with proceeds going to the Chancellor’s Scholarship Program, established in 1984 to attract and support academically talented individuals from underrepresented groups. The cover of the 1973 Steve Miller Band album The Joker is iconic. We’re giving you a glimpse inside the gatefold of our copy [AXH0848], which is part of our Wisconsin Music Archives. @uwmadison @uniontheater #stevemillerband #stevemiller #imajoker #wisconsinmusicarchives #millsmusiclibrary
  • Double dose of #marbledmonday from Le théatre de la Monnaie Depuis sa Fondation jusqu’à nos Jours, par Jacques Isnardon [Locked Case ML1726.8 B7 I8] Bruxelles: Schott frères, 1890. You may see the Google-digitized editions from New York Public Library, Princeton, and Harvard in HathiTrust, and the Bibliothèque nationale de France’s copy in their digital library Gallica, but those scans don’t include the fantastic cover and endpapers you see here. #marbledpaper #marblingpaper #millsmusiclibrary
  • Our primary mission is to support the research and curricular needs of the Mead Witter School of Music. We also serve the entire @uwmadison campus, the greater Madison community, the rest of the state, and beyond, in terms of satisfying musical information needs. This library also plays a part in altering lives in other ways sometimes. For example, @veronicayogabrarian & @davidawells met in Mills just over 11 years ago, and worked here throughout their respective graduate school trajectories. They’re celebrating their 7th anniversary today. Their names are still side-by-side on a shelf in our sound preservation studio, the DYMO labels designating the spots where materials they each worked on would be stored. Happy Anniversary, Veronica and Dave! #loveinthelibrary #millsmusiclibrary
