General Info

Over 4000 media resources (printed, audiovisual and digital) are available to students and teachers at the Prayner Conservatory of Mag. Josef Schmid.

The library offers a wide open-access range of different kinds of media. Over half of the collection consists of piano scores, orchestral scores and sheet music for various instruments which students and teachers need for lessons.

The book inventory includes numerous kinds of reference material, work listings, biographies, journals, theatre programmes and academic publications in the fields of music practice, music pedagogy, music history, musicology, dance and drama etc. Subject to financial possibilities, this collection will be continually extended based on recommendations from teachers and students.

The library also has a media centre which offers approx. 1500 CDs and 100 LPs.  

All items in the library collection must be used exclusively on the premises and cannot be loaned. A photocopier and scanner are available to library users.

The online catalogue is still being compiled, though part of the overall library collection is already catalogued. Readers can consult a printed and digital listing of the entire inventory. Registered users can pre-order material online.
