Jan Stadler Library
The Stadler-Trier Foundation Library was founded in Prague in 2021 as a legacy of its founder Jan Stadler (1922-2019). The foundations of the foundation are publications and music recordings that Jan Stadler collected during his lifetime. Musicological and philosophical literature, music and music recordings on various media (CD, DVD, LP records) are available. All of them are stored at the foundation's headquarters in the palace of Hrzánů z Harasov at Celetná Street No. 12. The library is intended for the professional and artistic public with a special focus on young concert artists. Full operation for the wider public is planned after the reconstruction of the premises on the first floor of the Hrzánské palace.
The library cooperates with the Verbis library program, through which the first 1,200 library items were electronically registered and catalogued in 2021-2022. Cooperation with the National Library has been established, and preparations are underway to enter records into the Comprehensive Catalog of the Czech Republic and the knihovny.cz portal.
The library is a member of the Union of Librarians and Information Workers (SKIP) and the International Association of Music Libraries, Museums and Information Centers (IAML). It is registered by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic as a public library with a specialized collection.
The library catalogue is available at https://stadler.kpsys.cz.
