CEDOM (Centre d’études et de documentation musicales)


The Centre for Musical Study and Documentation (Centre d’études et de documentation musicales, Cedom) was established in 1989 at the National Library of Luxembourg (BnL). It is tasked with compiling, centralising, indexing, conserving and rendering accessible the country’s national musical heritage. The Luxembourg musical collection includes printed musical scores and manuscripts, composer archives, sound recordings, song books, monographs, reference books and concert programmes.

The BnL’s non-Luxembourg musical collection also offers a selection of musical scores, works and reviews in addition to a musicology database documenting the history of international music.

The resources available in the Cedom and non-Luxembourg musical collection may be ordered online via, and can either be borrowed or consulted on site.

The rare and precious documents of the Cedom (score manuscripts, records and audio cassettes, composer archives) can be consulted at the library upon prior arrangement.

Centre National de l’Audiovisuel (CNA)

CNA bleu

Visitors to the Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA) get to experience an exceptional cultural diversity and are spoilt for choice with the centre’s two temporary exhibition spaces, Display01 and the Pomhouse, its two permanent galleries housing the Steichen Collections – The Bitter Years at the Waassertuerm and The Family of Man at Clervaux Castle – and, last but not least, its two cinema rooms and the centre’s multimedia library, known as the Médiathèque.

The CNA is both an open platform for the general public and a professional institution. It was established in 1989 and placed under the authority of the Ministry of Culture. Its missions are the conservation and enhancement of Luxembourg’s audiovisual heritage and to ensure that all members of the public can access the culture of sound and that of the fixed and moving image, through exhibitions, publications, screenings, conferences and other events aimed at the general public.

Production, distribution, conservation, restoration, creative and educational support... the tasks of the CNA’s three departments (film, photography and sound) are many and varied and require the involvement of numerous national and international specialists and creators. The CNA’s sound and photo studios, restoration workshop and archives enable it to serve the needs of professionals and creators from all corners of the audiovisual world.
