If you can’t find the item you are looking for on the list, please contact our Librarian to check whether we have it in stock.

Conditions of Hire
On receipt of the music ordered, you must inform the Librarian immediately, and in writing, if there is any discrepancy in numbers or any damage to the scores, etc. Failure to do this may result in your being liable for the replacement/repair of missing/damaged items.
The hire period stated in the offer letter is intended to allow sufficient time for the sending and return of the music.
Payment of hire charges is due one month after receipt of the invoice.
Scores should be returned within the hire period. If you find that you have some scores still outstanding, please return all those you do have, and send the missing ones as soon as possible later.
Before returning music, please remove any numbers you have added, paper clips, etc.
When returning music please include inside each parcel:
Identification of sender (your name and full address)
A statement of the number of scores in that parcel
A statement of the total number of scores returned.
You will be responsible for replacing (and meeting the cost of rebinding, if appropriate) all scores lost or damaged while on hire to you.
