Cooperation with the National Library of Australia

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

RISM Switzerland took over an unusual task in October 2016. In collaboration with the National Library of Australia (NLA) in Canberra, work started on a private music collection which was donated to the NLA and has to be shipped to Australia. The collection was assembled by an Australian couple of musicians, who has been based in Switzerland for 50 years. Cédric Güggi and Claudio Bacciagaluppi, together with Robyn Holmes, Senior Curator at the NLA, have arranged and summarily described a first part of the collection, and helped in packing it in shipping boxes.

This is a welcome opportunity for RISM Switzerland to expand its international relations. Worldwide, the common goal is to preserve, catalog and make music sources accessible to the public.
