#OutNow: A brand new musoW registry to explore music heritage on the web

Exciting launch: an application for crowdsourcing linked open data and a new version of musoW – a catalogue of online musical resources – are out

15 November 2021

Marilena Daquino and her team are happy to announce that a new version of the musoW registry is available online along with an app for crowdsourcing linked open data. MusoW is a catalogue of musical resources available on the web created to support teachers in music education, creative industries, historians, and musicologists in finding what they need (link here).

What is new about musoW? 

The original musow dataset already existed in a different platform hosted by KMi (Knowledge Media Institute of Open University). The team has developed a brand-new content management system,called CLEF (description and code here). CLEF allows to crowdsource new data and correct/enrich the data with links to external sources like Wikidata. In this new system, the team has imported musoW dataset, which has been reorganised according to the schema.org ontology.

Join the community!

Your contributions are welcome! MusoW not only allows you to explore music heritage, but anybody can add new resources. The reviewing and publication of new records are restricted to polifonia members. Stay tuned for our upcoming crowdsourcing campaign.
