Muziekcentrum van de Omroep library being dismantled

Recent plans by the Dutch government to dismantle the Broadcast Music Centre in Hilversum (which include abolishing the orchestra and chorus) may result in the disappearance of one of western Europe's largest sheet music libraries.

Unless independent funds can be raised by the MCO library in the next nine months, the scores will be sold to dealers or worse.  Around 5,000 have already been digitized, the rest will be lost.
