Resources in the Library

The Library Catalogue is the only way to search the library collections. These include:

  • Books - electronic and print

  • Journals - electronic and print

  • Scores

  • CDs & DVDs

  • Vinyl

Many of the Databases that we subscribe to are also searchable through the Library Catalogue please see our E-Resource section for more information.


Have a look at our borrowing page for information on how to borrow, return, renew and how many you can borrow and for how long.

The page also gives you information on how to reserve an item currently on loan or request an item the library doesn't have in stock.
