The Whittaker Library contains one of the most comprehensive collections of performance materials for music, dance, drama, production and film in the UK and internationally. The Whittaker Library is named after Dr William Gillies Whittaker, the first principal of the Scottish National Academy of Music (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).
Our collections offer a mix of print and electronic content and it’s all searchable via our Library Discovery Service.
All staff and students are members and we are open to the public for reference purposes. Extra-mural membership on payment of an annual fee is available to graduates of the Royal Conservatoire.
The Library Space is now closed, but we still are offering full access to thousands of e-resources
If you have any Library-related questions during our closure, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your co-operation at this time.
