New music for singers

The third phase of the library’s printed music strategy got underway this year. Having built up our collection of jazz, full scores, and opera, it was time to focus our attention on solo songs and collections. Look out for new works by contemporary composers such as Michael Finnissy, Giacinto Scelsi, Robin Holloway, Thomas Ades, Piers Hellawell, Tansy Davies, Roxanna Panufnik, Joanna Lee, Lynne Plowman, and Sally Beamish, as well as new additions from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern repertoires.

This year we are looking to develop our collection of music for violinists (solo music and accompanied), so if you have any recommendations please let us know. Requests for specific pieces – in any category – can be made by completing a purchase request form, available at the enquiry desk or on Moodle.

The library’s most recent printed music acquisitions are listed here, please keep checking for updates!

New printers and online credit payment facility

New printers

These new machines (‘Ricoh MFDs’) are multi-purpose and will print, photocopy, scan, and convert your documents into A4 and A5 booklets and they are quicker, easier to use, and a lot quieter than our old ones! Trinity Laban has also recently set up an online payment facility so that you can top up your balance with a credit or debit card wherever you are.

Instructions can be found next to the printers and on IT’s FAQs and Guides page on Moodle and help is always available at the desk. You might also like to check out the Jerwood Library’s own Moodle pages, where you will find guides on a range of topics such as writing programme notes for concerts and clearing copyright for assessed recitals and competitions in the Recitals and Competitions section.

We hope you enjoy using the new facilities. If you have any questions, comments, complaints, or suggestions, please feel free to contact us at any time, we are always interested to know what you think.
