There are some differences at Curzon Library, compared to the Conservatoire Library. When music students move to the new building, they can expect:

  • Easier self-issuing of stock. Multi-part sets will be issued as one item - you will need to ensure all parts are there before borrowing and returning.
  • Easier returning of stock. The sortation system at Curzon makes returning items easy - post the items through the slot and onto the conveyor belt, and the item will automatically be taken off your library account.
  • Dedicated space for music. Before June, two of the large rooms within Curzon library will be turned into music resource rooms, including a listening facility.
  • 24/7 opening. The Library is open 24/7 for most of the year, so study space and resources are available whenever suits you!
  • A large team of friendly Customer Services staff. We're available from 8am to 6pm for enquiries on the Help Desk, plus our online Library Help site is available 24/7.
  • Non-standard items. CD players, headphones and the projector will no longer be available for loan. There is a stationery vending machine which sells earphones.      


A new building extension at Curzon is due to open in 2017: this will increase the size of the study space available to students.
