Branch Music Libraries

 

Branch:

We currently have lists from branches holding different items.

You can look at the whole collection or restrict the search to a particular branch library.

You can search the libraries for particular composers, works, publisher references, and number of players.

You can also browse a list of all items in composer order.

In either case you can see, on the right of each item, a branch that has each item next to a right arrow icon. Clicking the right arrow shows all the branches that hold the item and the number of scores/parts held by each branch, together with any branch-specific information about the piece. Clicking on the branch identifier will create an email to send to that branch requesting that item. (If clicking the email link doesn't work on your computer you can send an email to branch@srp.org.uk, where branch is the name of the branch displayed on the screen.)

You can also download a printable pdf catalogue, organised either by composer or by number of parts.

To show the holdings for an item, click the right arrow icon at the end of the line. To show the holdings for all items, click the right arrow at the top right of the table.

You may search for any single string that might occur anywhere in any of the text fields:
