Some uses of digitized sheet music
  • Study
  • Musical content
  • Lyrics
  • Cover art
  • Ads
  • Performing
  • Locating physical collections for further
    investigation

Selecting sheet music for digitization

  • Cant select at the item level
  • Libraries consider
  • current usage
  • relationship to other collections
  • notable collectors
  • significant parts of larger collections
  • local user needs

4
But how to describe it?
  • Existing collections generally not described at
    the item level
  • Most early online sheet music collections used
    customized metadata models
  • Many similarities
  • Many differences
  • IUs IN Harmony Sheet Music from Indiana project
    has attempted to build upon these

5
IN Harmony metadata needs
  • Work for diverse project partners
  • Indiana University Lilly Library
  • Indiana State Library
  • Indiana State Museum
  • Indiana Historical Society
  • Facilitate interoperability
  • Effective user access

IN Harmony user studies
  • Search logs
  • Card sort
  • Task scenario
  • Email content analysis

IN Harmony categories
  • Title elements
  • Name elements

    Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting
  • Not just for online sheet music
  • Provides aggregated search, then sends the user
    back to the hosting institution for access
  • Long-term goal to be the place to go for online
    sheet music, similar to a union catalog

11
SMC collections indexed
  •  

12
Next steps for the SMC
  • Submitted proposal for a 1-year planning grant to
    start October 2007
  • Will study user needs and data provider needs
  • Meeting in Bloomington Fall 2007
  • Meeting at MLA 2008
  • Long-term plan
  • Continually add more collections
  • Become easier to use
  • Run harvesting on a more regular schedule
  • Add new services

13
Possible new SMC services
  • OAI Static Repository Gateway
  • Better metadata, including subject access
  • Harvest content in addition to metadata, starting
    with thumbnails of covers
  • Downloadable records (MARC, MODS, DC, etc.) to
    assist local cataloging
  • De-duplication of records
