GIMD’s responsibility was to support the cataloging of the phonogram stocks of a northeastern German music academy in the on-line union database of the Common Library Network (GBV).
Our client, a music library in South Germany, maintains a vast collection of vinyl records. It is of high interest especially for experts, since it comprises a considerable number of musical works by musicians from the region, in a range and variety probably not to be found anywhere else.
For the library of a northern German university of music, we have been electronically registering CD stocks for many years. Parts of the sheet music collection have also been processed in the meantime. These holdings were to be listed in the database of the Common Library Network (GBV).
Our commission involved data collection from 422 CDs and 956 partially large-format music prints in different languages and scripts, among them Hebrew and Cyrillic. Collected data was entered on-line into the catalog of the Southwest German Library Network (SWB) according to RDA guidelines and linked to existing data records.
The collection of the “Walter Schätzlein Jazz Archive” in Nuremberg was to be cataloged both formally and content-based.
