We support and fund the education and training of music librarians in the UK and Ireland.


We also fund research projects related to music libraries, librarianship, and bibliography.

The Music Libraries Trust was founded by and remains closely affiliated with the UK and Ireland branch of the International Association of Music Libraries.

Without the availability of music libraries, I would never have got to know musical scores. They are absolutely essential for the furtherance of musical knowledge and enjoyment.
— Sir Peter Maxwell Davies (Composer and Conductor)
