Library & Archives

The Library and Archives has partnered with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) to become one of CWRU’s Affiliated Libraries. This arrangement allows the Library and Archives to share CWRU’s online catalog for the cataloging of our materials, and it also makes the Library and Archives a member of OhioLINK, giving our researchers access to numerous OhioLINK electronic resources. Additionally, our partnership with CWRU in the new Center for Popular Music Studies is now bringing scholars and graduate students to Cleveland to conduct research in the Library and Archives.

The resources of the Rock Hall’s Library and Archives support various curricula at Tri-C, CWRU, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, and other institutions of higher learning in Northeast Ohio.

After years of planning, ground was first broken on the Library and Archives site in 2007. Our state-of-the-art 22,500-square-foot facility shares a building with the Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), located about two miles southeast of the Museum. Tri-C is one of the most respected community colleges in the country, offering courses on such subjects as music history, music theory, and the music business, and its acclaimed Recording Arts and Technology program trains students for careers in the recording industry.
