Using other Libraries
RNCM students and staff are entitled to access other Libraries. Details can be found below.
The RNCM Library is part of a national scheme called SCONUL Access which allows RNCM members access to the Libraries of other academic institutions. UG students are allowed reference-only access; PGs and staff are allowed borrowing rights. You can apply to use the scheme on the Sconul Access website. For more information please ask at the Library counter.
Major academic library collections which may be of use locally include:
- The University of Manchester Library (substantial music holdings, including much research material)
- University of Salford Library (strong in jazz and brass band material and information on the music industry)
- Manchester Metropolitan University Library (strong in music education materials)
RNCM members are also entitled to join Manchester Central Library, which houses the Henry Watson Music Library. This is one of the largest public music lending libraries in Britain.
