The Helsinki Music Centre houses the Sibelius Academy Music Library, an extensive research library for all music enthusiasts, both academic and layman.
The library can be used for listening to records and viewing videos, reading magazines, researching assembled works, using online materials and borrowing books, notes and recordings.
Some of the library’s services are only for Sibelius Academy students, teachers and staff (partly applicable to the University of the Arts Helsinki’s’ students and staff as well).
The service desk, all items available for loan, and 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 desk, and staff offices are situated on the upper level.
