There are some major improvements to the Branch Music Libraries on the website. You can now download nicely formatted printable library catalogues (in pdf) for individual branches and for the SRP as a whole. The catalogues can be organised by composer, or by number of players.

For branch librarians, the main change is that they can now use the website to record loans, while adding and editing entries is now easier.
