CMC is a partner in the new Music PAL inter-library access scheme

Imagine a card which gets you into some of the best music libraries in Ireland! This is the Music PAL access card which facilitates access to music information and materials available across a broad range of libraries and archives throughout the island of Ireland.

Organised by COLICO, the all-Ireland Committee on Library Co-operation, Music PAL started on a pilot basis on 1 September 2009, and was launched nationally on 8 March 2010 during Library Ireland Week.

The Music PAL scheme includes 10 public, 9 higher education, 3 conservatoire and 5 special libraries throughout the island of Ireland, a total of 27 institutions in all.  Many of these hold broad collections of various sizes, while others (such as the Irish Traditional Music Archive and the Contemporary Music Centre) focus on specific musical genres.

The Contemporary Music Centre is very pleased to be a part of this innovative and inspiring project.
