Abstract

This article discusses the metadata records aggregated by the Sheet Music Consortium using the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting. The Consortium’s web site serves as a union catalog for over a quarter of a million records, harvested from 27 providers. During a recent period of revision, the Consortium decided to experiment with normalizing data and publishing authority data related to sheet music. A pilot project focused on sheet music publishers is discussed and the results are presented.
