The Helsinki Music Centre houses the Sibelius Academy Library, an extensive research library for all music enthusiasts, both academic and layman.
The core of our music and book collections is material used by the Sibelius Academy. We acquire new recordings for the Library on a regular basis, taking into account such factors as music history, music genres, different performance practices and the quality of the item.
The Library features an extensive collection of composers' completed works, anthologies, and a range of approximately 180 music journals. All clients are welcome to access various music databases and other electronic material from the Library computers.
The Service Desk, all items available for loan, and the music listening stations are on the lower level of the Library. Recorded material is available for use on the Library premises only. The reading room, reference library, storeroom, information point, and staff offices are situated on the upper level.
Further information about the Library is available at http://lib.siba.fi/en//home .
Information about the collections can be found on the union catalogue of art university libraries, ARSCA.
