The M. Paula Survilla Collection of World Instruments

Check out one of the instruments

How to check out one of the instruments:

  1. Choose an instrument:

    • View the pages here to help you decide what you'd like to explore.

  2. Check out at desk:

    • Each instrument is on permanent reserve, so you must ask for it by name at the circulation desk. Check out time is one week!

  3. Responsibility Form:

    • You will also be asked to sign a short acknowledgement of responsibility form. You will only have to fill out the form the first time--after that, we will have it on file.

Bonus: Learn to play or research an instrument:

See the "Learn to play..." page to the left for how to find lesson books and research materials for each instrument.
