Services

The Médiathèque Musicale Mahler in Paris has an international reputation as a general resource center for music research and for various collections. A third of its visitors come from outside France (European countries, America and Asia).

To valorise these collections, put at the public’s disposal thanks to Maurice Fleuret and Henry-Louis de La Grange, the Médiathèque Musicale Mahler proposes several services: in-house consultation of documents, documentary or iconographic research, and organisation of exhibitions.

For any additional information, please refer to the « Services » section in the French version.
