Lending rules and loan periods
To borrow materials from the library, you must be a registered student or employee and have a KMH keycard. You can borrow sheet music, books, DVDs, CDs and old issues of journals for four weeks. For orchestra material, special rules apply.
Your keycard is valid as a library card. Lending can be done by an automat. Using a personal PIN code you receive at the library information desk, you can see your loans, hold requests, and make renewals.
Loan period and suspension
The loan period is four weeks. You will receive three reminders after the loan term expires. If you do not return the material, you will then be suspended from further loans. The library does not charge overtime fees.
Replacement fees lost materials
You have to replace lost materials. Examples of replacement fees for non-returned material:
Type of material
Piano score for opera
Lending rules for orchestral material
Orchestral material is lent exclusively for use by KMH ensembles and orchestras.
Orders must be made by the responsible teacher at least eight weeks before use. KMH have a certain stock of orchestral material, but we often need to lend or rent the material from external libraries or publishers.
You check out your orchestral parts at the library, or sometimes at the Support services. Each musician is personally responsible for the part being checked out.
In Mikromarc, our library database, you can make renewals of scores, books, CDs and films.
