A contemporary composers' collection, in the formative
stages, is intended to support research leading to performance of
contemporary musical works. Thus, major elements of the collection include
scores in manuscript, recordings of performances, and papers of composers.
Significant development of the collection is anticipated with the completion
of the Diehn Composers Room, a special collections facility planned as
an addition to the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Building.
