Informationspool: Improved user experience

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Thanks to the latest developments in the RISM software, the user experience of the project “Repertory of Swiss composers of the 19th century” was improved. The project aimed at digitising and publishing online ca. 250 sources of importance for Swiss musical output, mostly from the 19th century. They are kept in ca. thirteen different Swiss libraries.

Now it is possible to filter search results by digitised images. Also, the links to different external sites are improved. Catalog records with digitised sources are linked with the catalog records of the corresponding sound recording (if extant) in the Swiss National Sound Archives. Wherever possible, a link was also included to a biographical article in the Swiss historical dictionary.

See the project page for more information about the project.
