Integrating digital music libraries

In order to answer research questions, musical heritage scholars need to combine diverse datasets (music scores, audiovisual materials, metadata) from European digital music libraries and audiovisual archives. They need to identify common entities and concepts implicitly present in the data, across different collections in different institutions. This process is mainly conducted manually in isolation and the diverse results are rarely connected. This pilot will focus on revealing and make compatible the entities and concepts hidden in digital music libraries and audiovisual archives.
