Musicological bibliographical database

Entry to the catalogue HERE

In 2014, an electronic annotated musicological bibliography database, gathering the results of a Czech musicological production from 2013, was initiated in the Department of Music History (DMH). This pilot project is based on experience from earlier bibliographical projects, especially the Musicological production in Czech Lands and international bibliography RILM (Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale).

For realization of the database, the Aleph library cataloguing programme was chosen. The Library of the Academy of Science monitors the cataloguing work, saving and handing it on to ANL. During the pilot phase of the project, the cataloguing was performed in MARC 21 format; recently, the new RDA format is coming into use. The creation of a catalogue record is preceded with a physical document, and the database of the National Library of the Czech Republic and records in the General Catalogue of the Czech Republic are also used. Methodological guidance of the coordination centre of ANL based in The Research Library in Hradec Králové is used for one sector of the analytical records. In this cooperation, DMH provides analytical description of the articles in musicological journals, and this part of the project received VISK 9/1 financial support from the Ministry of Culture.

When creating an actual bibliography, DMH proceeds with a musicological production of previous year, especially focusing on Czech authors. The foundation of our records are newly-produced printed bibliographical inventories, published every year in the journal Hudební věda (Musicology). Another integral part of this project is the retrospective cataloguing of articles from earlier years of Hudební věda. The project's later phases will also contain retrospective conversion of the published bibliography lists, published annually in Hudební věda since 1970.

Access to the bibliographical database is possible via the Union Catalogue of the Academy of Science's home page. A basic search, extended fields, advanced search and search in CCL language are possible. The bilingual description (Czech and English) also allows the use of the database by international scholars.
