In February 2014, the project “Fachinformationsdienst (FID) Musikwissenschaft” has been started in the Bavarian State Library. It is sponsored by the German Research Foundation and will last for 3 years. One task in this project is to provide the musicological community in Germany with digital media. All members of the German Society of Musicology (Gesellschaft für Musikforschung) are eligible to access these digital media after registering in the FID system.
The following resources are accessible after successful registration:
- Index to Printed Music
- JSTOR Complete Music Collection
- Music Online – Classical Scores Libraries II und III
- music relevant e-Books from the aggregator platform MyiLibrary
- ca. 60 E-Books from Oxford University Press
Further information about the FID licences and the registration process can be found in an en entry of the ViFaMusik-blog.
