The Henry Mancini Institute Music Library contains many of Henry Mancini’s original orchestrations and other new compositions and arrangements created especially for the Henry Mancini Institute by such conductor-composers as Jerry Goldsmith, James Newton Howard, Jorge Calandrelli, Patrick Williams, Randy Newman, Shelly Berg, John Clayton, Justin DiCioccio, Michael Dougherty, Jack Elliott, Lee Holdridge, Bob Mintzer, Vince Mendoza, Gary Lindsay, Raul Murciano, Steve Guerra and others.
Donated by the Mancini Family, the Henry Mancini Institute Music Library is now cataloged and housed at the Marta and Austin Weeks Music Library and Technology Center at the University of Miami Frost School of Music.
The Marta and Austin Weeks Music Library and Technology Center showcases a wide range of resources. Among the nationally known collections housed in the 22,500 square-foot facility are sound recordings, musical scores, musical manuscripts, research collections, and a wealth of e-resources. This state-of-the-art research facility supports the learning and research needs of the members of the Frost School of Music, the University’s Coral Gables campus, and the wider regional and international music communities.
The library contains sophisticated playback equipment, MacIntosh and Dell computers to facilitate research, and a variety of quiet and comfortable places to study. A highly trained and dedicated library staff organizes and provides assistance with the collections, equipment, and networked technology. The library’s faculty also provides formal instruction in the use of the myriad resources.
Coupled with the University of Miami Libraries’ impressive general collection, the Weeks Music Library helps create one of the most important music research centers in the southeastern United States.
