The Jean Cujé Milwaukee Music Collection is a unique collection of music in all formats recorded by artists in the Milwaukee area, gathered through
donations and purchased to serve the local community. Materials include compact discs, cassettes, phonodiscs, videos and related items. Music of all types
is collected, including classical, jazz, folk, rock, etc., recorded by artists who have spent most of their careers living and performing in the Milwaukee
area. The collection is housed on open shelving on Raynor's second level. CD players are available on the lower level of Raynor. Visitors are welcome to enjoy
the music on the premises. MarquetteID holders may borrow items from the collection for a 5 day period. Persons with no current Marquette affiliation may request
items by interlibrary loan through their local library.
Named after and dedicated to the memory of Jean Cujé, a library cataloger who died in November 1992, the collection combines Jean's love of music with
her career of providing people with educational and recreational materials through libraries. In addition to being a librarian, Jean also played the
bassoon with such renowned groups as the American Ballet Theatre, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and others. She received a Bachelor of Music degree
from Oberlin Conservatory of Music and a Master of Library Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Before joining the Marquette University
Memorial Library, she was a part time music teacher with the Milwaukee Public School System. Jean served the Marquette community as a librarian from 1979
