How to Use This Collection:

  • Select your desired piece from the Catalogue.
  • Contact the relevant Library.
  • Collect and return the work(s) you have hired from/to the issuing library in person.
  • Our loan periods are negotiable, but in general we determine them by the date of your concert plus two weeks.
  • You are responsible for all of the parts that you hire.
    • Parts should only be marked in pencil and all markings should be rubbed out before return. An admin fee of £10 may be charged for the removal of markings.
    • If parts are lost or damaged, you may be charged a replacement fee. Please note that some works cannot be purchased on a part-by-part basis, so loss of one part may result in a charge for the full set.
    • If parts are being returned by post, we consider the date of postmark to be the date returned. You may wish to use registered post and/or tracked delivery.
  • You are responsible for all Performing Rights requirements and for adherence to Copyright regulations.
