- Music scores: all music scores classified MI-M2199 will be shelved/ labeled for the multimedia collection.
- Recorded music: records and CD's will be cataloged according to the AACRL2 /OCLC music and entered into the online catalog. The call number will be the accession number. The status will be "Library Use Only."
- Equipment, scores, and CD's will be tagged for security purposes.
