A portion of the library's print collection, including books, scores and bound magazines, is located in a storage room. Bound magazines/journals dated prior to 2005 will be located in local or offsite storage. If the online library catalog indicates the location is "CIM Storage" or "JMP Off-site Storage", submit a storage request form to access the item.
Storage Request forms may be filled out at the Circulation Desk or e-mailed to the Circulation Supervisor. Please allow 24 hours for the retrieval of the item(s).
Some items are listed in the library catalog as being in "JMP Offsite Storage". These are items reserved for CIM Conservatory Students and Faculty and CWRU Music Students and Faculty that are located in CIM's offsite storage facility. To get access to those items, send in the request form, and you will be notified when the item is available in Robinson Music Library.
All patrons are guaranteed to have any checked out item for two weeks (with the exception of media). Items checked out longer than two weeks are subject to recall by other library patrons.
If an item is currently checked out, you can inquire at the Circulation Desk if it is available to be recalled.
Recall Request forms may be filled out at the Circulation Desk. It typically takes three days for an item to be recalled. The fine for overdue recalled items is $1/day.
The Robinson Music Library welcomes suggestions for additions to its library collection of books, scores, recordings and visual materials. All RequestIt! forms submitted will be considered as they fit within collection guidelines.
