ST IVES CHORAL SOCIETY:  MUSIC LOANS

GROUND RULES
Ÿ
SICS provides loan copies of music for concerts to any member who does not already have – or wish to purchase – his/her own music.
Ÿ
Loan copies are signed out by the librarians at the beginning of a rehearsal cycle.
Ÿ
Loan copies should only be annotated in soft pencil – taking care to mark only where really necessary. (Please don’t use the scores as a diary for SICS events.) These marks should be rubbed out before return – unless the music has to be collected on the night of the concert.
Ÿ
This music is borrowed by SICS from libraries or other musical organisations. It must be returned to them within a few weeks after the concert date.
Ÿ
There is a cost to SICS for the loan and delivery of music. This cost is accounted for in the annual membership fee.
Ÿ
The cost of replacing music which is not returned must be met by the individual borrower.
Ÿ
SICS also loans a black folder for concert performances which is retained by the member until he/she no longer wishes to be a member of SICS.

RETURN OF MUSIC – for those who participate in a concert
Ÿ
When SICS is still in session after a concert, members taking part in the concert should return the music at the next rehearsal – and no later than the second.
Ÿ
If an individual is not able to return the music within this timescale, the music should be given to the librarian on the night of the concert.
Ÿ
The music may be collected on the night of a concert – where there is a long break before the next rehearsal cycle begins (e.g. after a summer term concert).

RETURN OF MUSIC – for those who do not participate in a concert and/or leave SICS
Ÿ
If a member withdraws from SICS – or from a particular concert – the member is responsible for returning the music in a timely way – I.e. before the date of the concert.
Ÿ
Music should be returned to a librarian or a section rep at rehearsal where the individual knows they will not be returning.
Ÿ
Where an individual has the borrowed music at home, the individual is responsible for returning it – either via another member of SICS – or to the librarian’s home.
Ÿ
Any problems with returning the music should be notified to the librarian who will arrange collection.
