A new digital library: Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Postby bicinium » Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:42 am

Just a week ago, the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany launched a digital library featuring assets from 9 libraries, 11 archives and 4 museums/collections. One of those libraries is the Landesbibliothek Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Schwerin, which holds manuscripts for a lot of the Viennese double bass solo repertoire.

Accouncement:

Link to the digital library:
http://www.digitale-bibliothek-mv.de/
Example of a viewable music manuscript:

Just mentioning this for any interested parties, and whether it is appropriate to create an external library template for this?

Sorry, it doesn't seem like they're actually on the site. These are the assets contributed by the landesbibliothek. They all seem to be annual reports for now.

They do offer digitization services, so I suspect that digitized manuscripts will make it onto the digital library.

By viennese bass, I mean e.g. the concertos by Dittersdorf and Vanhal (and Pichl and Hoffmeister, which aren't available yet).

Sorry, but I found no results with contrabbasso or Kontrabass. What is your source of information? A few results with Violone, but only double-bass parts of concertos.

My sources are CD booklets, prefaces to some editions, and one publishing house that I've emailed. There's some files from the library already on IMSLP (examples: Dittersdorf concerto 2, Sperger bass/viola duet, Vanhal concerto), I'd sure like to know how the uploaders got those!

I was able to locate two sub-collections with music material at that site: bibliotheken.101ub_rostock.digimusikalien and bibliotheken.100universitaetsbibliothek.100lplymusikwissenschaft.

Those are the university libraries of Rostock and Greifswald, respectively, also in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It looks like they already had online catalogues, so they're further ahead in the digital age than the actual state library.
