The School of Music Studies Library has been open to the public since 1993. It is housed on the 1st floor of the new building of the School of Music Studies, at the new campus in the area of Thermi, opposite the housing estate 'Lida-Maria'.
The collection consists of material relating mostly to musicology, as well as other relevant fields (theater, dance, visual arts, pedagogy, psychology, philosophy etc.). The school's library is not only an academic one but also a special interest library, since it houses collections of different types of material.
Moreover the library receives new issues of 60 journals, mostly international ones on a regular basis.
In the library a digital data base has been created, which inludes unique and unreleased recordings of folk songs, collected in the framework of thesis preparation by the students of the school.
Also a continuously expanding collection of traditional musical instruments, made by traditional manufacturers of Greece, has been created.
