The Music library is situated on Level 1 of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music building and it is the youngest of all NUS Libraries. It opened in July 2006. 

A collection of print and electronic materials including music scores, CD and DVD titles, that covers the western art music tradition is easily accessible to cater to the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.

There are state-of-the-art listening and multimedia viewing stations as well as computers in the library. A small electronic piano is also in the library for the convenience of the Conservatory's students and researchers.

There are no really safe bicycle lanes to NUS Kent Ridge Campus except through Dover Road to University Town. Once you are in University Town, take Campus Link, which has a bicycle lane, to enter Kent Ridge. There are two other marginally safer ways to get on the Kent Ridge campus:

  • From Pasir Panjang Road, enter Heng Mui Keng Terrace, which leads to Kent Ridge Drive.
  • Enter Science Park I from Portsdown Ave (near Normanton Park). Exit at South Buona Vista Road, just outside the NUHS building.

Note that this can be a busy junction during morning and evening peak hours.
