Access to Music Archives

Overseen by the Archives and Music Documentation Centres Section. Founded 2005.

The access to music archives needs to be improved. It is important for scholars to know where the documents are kept after composers, musicians, choirs, opera companies, conservatories, music publishers etc.

The aim of the project group is to provide information about institutions that own personal and institutional fonds and music collections, and to create tools to describe those fonds at the collection level.

Many countries are developing projects related to music archives. This project group aims to connect those projects in order to best supplement the information. This project group also aims to offer countries that do not have their own database the possibility to register individual music archives via a web form in several languages. We welcome institutions that want to take part in this project.
