Abstract [en]

The history of public music libraries, if defined as libraries lending music and music literature to the public without membership limitations or commercial interest, is generally regarded to commence with nineteenth-century institutions such as the Musikbibliothek Peters in Leipzig and the Civica Biblioteca Musicale Andrea della Corte in Turin, often with a background related either to private foundations or commercial publishing. This, however, fails to recognise the public availability of collections in governmental and royal professional institutions in a tradition quite separate from the commercial institutions, beginning already in the eighteenth century. One such example is the Library of the Swedish Royal Academy of Music, the collections of which were open on special conditions already by the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and accessible to non-members from the middle of the nineteenth century onwards. This article examines principles and practice concerning acquisitions, loans, and cataloguing throughout the first hundred years of the Library, assessing how the methods and ideals of the Academy librarians relate to music librarianship today.
