List of services

In-library consultation service

Eresbil has a reference and reading room with direct access to the most up-to-date reference collection and bibliography, a collection of scores by Basque and international composers, and journals received in the current year.

The choral library, a collection created together with the Federation of Choirs of the Basque Country, and the dance library are also open access. This room has a piano for study purposes.

Users have a room for listening to audio documents and viewing audiovisual documents, either individually or in groups.

Users may employ their electronic devices to photograph documents only when they are in public domain, their state of preservation allows it and with the express authorisation of the archive staff.

Guidance and bibliographic information

Specialised bibliographic guidance on different topics is provided: in the archive, by post, or by email. In the case of specific queries, information is also provided by telephone. Bibliographic lists are also provided through selective information searches.

Reproduction of documents

The researcher is provided with the reproduction of documents, both textual and audio documents, with the limitations that comply with the Intellectual Property Law and the principle of preservation of documents. The reproduction of works that do not belong to the public domain, i.e. subject to intellectual property rights, is only possible when this is done on a non-profit basis and exclusively for research purposes (art. 37.1 of RDL 1/1996). This archive is not responsible for any use contrary to copyright laws that may be made from the reproductions.

In order to process any request, the application form must be completed and the payment must be made. The publication by any means of documents belonging to the collection deposited in ERESBIL, be they textual, photographic or sound, must include a quotation of their origin.

Interlibrary loan service

This service is mainly aimed at music libraries in the Basque Country, although in some cases loans may be made to other libraries. Under no circumstances will loans be made to individuals. A reproduction will be sent in the case of requests for works excluded from the loan for conservation reasons, in which case payment must be made for the reproduction. An application form must be completed for each document requested and the loan period will be one month from the reception, with the possibility of requesting an extension.

Cultural activities

Guided tours are organised for students and other groups.

Authorization for use of rooms

The multi-purpose hall may be used by associations or other public or private entities for conferences or courses, subject to a prior study of their application.
