Branch Music Libraries

 

We currently have lists from 9 branches holding 1576 different items.

You can search the libraries for particular composers, works, publisher and catalogue number, and number of players. You can also restrict the search to a particular branch library.

You can also browse a list of the complete catalogue in composer order.

In either case you can see, on the right of each item, a branch that has each item next to a down arrow icon. Clicking the down arrow shows all the branches that hold the item and the number of scores and parts held by each branch. 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.)
