Music lending collection re-opens

Earlier this month the British Library’s music lending collection at Boston Spa re-opened, after a 2-year closure due to a major programme of asbestos removal and management.  The collection is an important resource for music librarians in public, academic and other kinds of libraries as well as independent BL Boston Sparesearchers.  Its main strengths include collected editions, scholarly series and facsimile reprints (rarely available for loan from any other source) but also scores by contemporary composers and  new performing editions of older chamber, instrumental and vocal music, as well as a large collection of popular songs in both piano/vocal/guitar and guitar tab editions.
