Enhancing an OAI-PMH Service Using Linked Data: A Report from the Sheet Music Consortium


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.
