The RIAM provides access to books and journals on music, performing scores, miniature and full scores, orchestral and choral sets and recordings in multiple formats. Electronic resources are also available, and the library offers listening stations, computers and copying facilities. A guide to the library can be downloaded from here: Library Guide (.pdf format)
The library’s Special Collections hold printed music of historical interest from the 18th and 19th centuries.
All currently registered students of the RIAM, both part-time and full time can use the library and borrow materials from the collections. For more information on entitlements, check the Resources and Services section.
We are happy to provide access to external users who wish to consult our collections, but would recommend that they contact us in advance. Since 2009 the library has participated in the Music Pal Scheme, which facilitates members of other Irish libraries in gaining access to the RIAM’s collections.
