As of today, the library has four iPads on which the library database can be searched, instead of the large monitor. Two iPad databases can be found on the ninth floor, the two other iPads hang on the wall on the eighth floor.
It is possible to consult various databases on MyAHK. It is now also possible to consult the music file on Academia. In this file a selection of music programmes recorded by Dutch national broadcasting can be found, on the subject of, for instance, Classical music, festivals (Holland Festival, Pinkpo, North Sea Jazz, Festival Classique), masterclasses, conservatories and music education.
Please click 'Academia' in the databases. It will be explained how to log on. After that you will see the icon 'files' ('dossiers'), here you will find the music file.
