Utilisation and Services

The media inventory of the library of the Anton Bruckner Private University comprises a wide range of scores, books, AV-media, periodicals and electronic resources on the core themes music, dance, drama, pedagogy, literature and the history of the arts ( see also Facts and Figures).

Open-access shelving makes most of the media readily available to our users.
