If you would like support searching our stock online, please watch our helpful videos for music or drama. Alternatively, a step by step guide to the service is available on request. If you are unable to locate the title you are looking for do contact us, or alternatively, submit an Inter-Library Loan request via your NPALS account. We are part of the Inter-Library Loan scheme which shares resources with Libraries across the UK. We’ll do our best to help you find the resources you require. 

We also value your recommendations, so please do send in suggestions for titles you would like to see included in the collection.  

For the loan of single plays, scores and music for small ensemble, Nottingham City Libraries continues to house an excellent provision. These resources are available to browse and borrow with a standard library card
