Opening hours 04.19. till 07.15.2022

The Library of the HMTMH, with its collection of about 300,000 items (books, recordings etc.), is one of the largest of all the Universities of Music. The subjects covered range from Historic and Systematic Musicology to Music Education to Ethnomusicology. Of particular interest are the "Andor Izsák Collection" Library at the European Centre for Jewish Music which includes, for example, the vast research library of the music ethnologist Dr Edith Gerson-Kiwi (1908–1992), and the collection of German-language music teaching books since 1750. In the fields of Media and Communication Sciences, the HMTMH and Hochschule Hanover (University of Applied Sciences and Arts) have a joint library at the Kurt Schwitters Forum.
