In this workshop RISM’s specially developed programme for documenting musical sources, called Muscat, will be demonstrated. Muscat is a web-based, platform-independent, and open-source programme that is available free of charge. An overview of Muscat will be given and there will also be an opportunity to catalogue music directly into Muscat. RISM encourages librarians to include music manuscripts from any time period up to the present, printed materials until ca. 1900, as well as libretti and treatises.

Space is limited. Please register by sending an e-mail to contact@rism.info

At this 15th SIMSSA Workshop, we will be highlighting recent developments, including reports on software development over the past year and will be seeking feedback from the music library community.

The Single Interface for Music Score Searching and Analysis (https://simssa.ca) is a ten-year Canadian government funded project, which started in 2011, developing open-source software for optical music recognition, music encoding, and analysis, making digitized scores searchable and freely available online.

Anyone interested is welcome to attend the free workshop.

MEI - Workshop of the MEI Metadata and Cataloging Interest Group
Saturday, 28 July 2018, 1 - 5 pm, University Library Leipzig, Fürstenzimmer
(Johannes Kepper, Kristina Richts)

In November 2017 there was a first international Workshop on „Metadata Profiles for MEI“ (7.-9.11.2017, Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur Mainz). The aim of the discussions is to achieve a more uniform use of the data format MEI for the documentation and exchange of musicological metadata between the MEI Community, musicological projects and institutions as well as libraries. Questions such as connectivity to other formats from the music library context are also addressed. The Workshop offered at the IAML conference serves as a continuation of the discussions started in Mainz. 

Anyone interested is welcome to attend the free workshop.
