Jerwood Library

The Jerwood Library of the Performing Arts supports Trinity Laban’s mission to create informed performers of the highest calibre. Our core objective is to provide the music information, resources and materials that students and staff require.

We are also a research library with collections of international significance - including rare and in some cases unique items - all of which are available for study and research. Most of these collections include material that could be used as the basis of a dissertation or thesis, or for researching unusual repertoire.
