In purchasing a membership to borrow items from the collection you agree to the following terms and conditions:

  1.  I/We acknowledge that the purpose of the Library is to provide copies of scores, recordings and other reference materials to individuals/organisations with a genuine interest in appreciating, performing, recording and/or broadcasting works by New Zealand composers.

  2. Works borrowed from the Library are for the purpose of private study only. I/We agree that scores or recordings will not be copied or disseminated in any manner.

  3. I/We acknowledge that recordings are not available for scholastic purposes in public without having first gained the permission of the composer or relevant copyright owners.

  4. The Centre does not involve itself with rights. If I/we wish to use the work in performance or any other public setting, it is my/our responsibility to secure the appropriate rights.

  5. The items are on loan for a period of two months from the date of issue.

  6. Failure to return items by the agreed date will invoke a charge and may incur a temporary suspension of borrowing rights. If an item is lost, I/we agree to pay the replacement costs for that item plus a reasonable fee for administration. If the item is subsequently found, SOUNZ is not required to refund the replacement and administration costs.

  7. SOUNZ will endeavour to provide the items requested but I/we agree not to hold SOUNZ liable for failure to provide any item requested.

  8. Charges for membership contribute to the maintenance and development of the collection at SOUNZ. I/We acknowledge that it is my/our responsibility to pay postage to and from SOUNZ.

  9. When using the online services I/we agree to the General Terms and Conditions of the site.

Further information

Accessing the collection

  • Information about the collection held at SOUNZ can be obtained by application to the Centre or visiting our website:

Expiry of membership

  • Membership is normally for 12 months from date of joining and is renewable.
  • Where a member takes out a Standard Membership which has a limit on the number of items that can be borrowed, the membership will expire if the borrowing limit is reached before 12 months has elapsed. In this case a further membership can be bought online, or an upgrade to the existing membership can be purchased by contacting SOUNZ directly.
