Music: COVID-19


We have extended our online music offer and are currently prioritizing purchasing electronic formats where possible. 

The University Library is offering a range of services that will enable you to either borrow or consult music items. The Anderson Room is not yet open to readers so if you are looking for materials that are only listed in the card catalogues, or that may be in our uncatalogued printed or archival collections, please contact the music team directly on

The Pendlebury Library is preparing click-and-collect, book a study space and book and browse options from the start of Michaelmas Term. These services are available to current University staff and students. Depending on how the COVID-19 situation evolves services we are able to offer may vary throughout term. If we cannot deliver all options, zero-contact services such as click-and-collect will take priority over booking library spaces. 

Under current lockdown restrictions the Pendlebury Library is offering zero-contact services.  From 19 April limited bookable in person services will be available for students and staff who are already in Cambridge. 

Click-and-collect: you can request items through our webform. Once the items are ready for collection library staff will contact you by email and you will able to make a booking to pick up the items from the Pendlebury Library via Cambridge Libraries Calendar: Pendlebury Library of Music.

Book and browse: if you require access to the open shelves, you can check for available slots on Cambridge Libraries Calendar: Pendlebury Library of Music Study Space. This will give you access to open shelve items that are borrowable through self issue.

Book a study space: should you wish to study in the library to consult reference only items, you can check for available slots on Cambridge Libraries Calendar: Pendlebury Library of Music Study Space. This will give you the opportunity to study in the library and access specific items. This does not include access to the open shelves.  

Library chatbook a slot or email us to arrange an online meeting with a member of the library team about your information needs, or anything you need to know about the library.

Scan and deliver: the Pendlebury Library is providing support for scanning for teaching (Moodle). Scans for individual study and research can be requested through the University Library Scan and Deliver service. 

Book returns: the Pendlebury Library bookdrop is available during Music Faculty opening times.
