Our library is open to the public for historical research and may be accessed by anyone above the age of 18. No presentation letter is required.
The holdings/collections, which can be searched using the electronic catalogues, are partly displayed on open shelves and partly kept in storage facilities. The library does not offer national or international interlibrary loan services, and lending in general is strictly excluded. Library staff is on hand to assist users in searching library materials and to answer any other queries.
Wifi connection and power sockets for laptops are available in the reading rooms. Research stations provide access to OPACs and to electronic resources. Microform readers are available.
Users may photocopy library materials, using their own digital cameras or one of the scan stations available in the library. The user must comply with the laws regarding copywrite protection. In addition, it is possible to request a limited number of photocopies (8 copies 1 euro) and copies from the microform readers (0.40 euro per copy).
A stereo system is available for musicology research, enabling the listening of audio materials. There is also a concert piano, a harpsichord and a digital piano in the listening room.
