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, Bob Brookmeyer, Steve Guerra, and many more.

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 HMI Library also houses two special collections of music donated to the school. Featuring music for string quartet, the Korn Library was donated by Howard and Jackie Banchik.  Jackie’s father, Bernard Korn, was a physician and an excellent violinist who played chamber music regularly.  The library is a real treasure, including rare editions and hard-to-find repertoire. The Paula Wayne library contains over a hundred arrangements written for Paula Wayne, a performer and actress who enjoyed  prolific career on Broadway, as a recording artist, and live performer. She appeared opposite Sammy Davis Jr. in the broadway classic “Golden Boy”.
