Book request service

Specialised Information Service for Musicology

  • Is there a certain book, a certain sheet music print or a certain journal that can hardly or not at all be found in German libraries?
  • Do you wish us to make web content accessible for you or do you wish to recommend web content for archiving?
  • Do you wish to inform us about a scholarly topic on which you would like us to collect more literature in the future?

You are welcome to send us your request!

As the responsible service provider, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek will seek to acquire requested materials which correspond to the profile of the Specialised Information Service for Musicology. Depending on the procurement situation, you will receive the requested materials via national loan/ interlibrary loan, in digital form, or we will lend our support in procuring an international interlibrary loan, where required. In the case of recommended web contents and research trends, we will check whether such content can be archived, entered in our databases, licensed or incorporated in our acquisition profile.
