MT-Katalog wird international präsentiert / International presentation of the MT-Katalog

Wir arbeiten kontinuierlich daran, die Inhalte und Funktionen des MT-Katalogs zu erweitern und zu verbessern. Unsere diesbzüglichen Bestrebungen werden im musikbibliothekarischen Kontext mittlerweile auch international wahrgenommen.

Wir möchten uns an den daran geknüpften Diskussionen um „Music Discovery“ gern beteiligen und freuen uns, auf der Internationalen Konferenz der Musikbibliotheken (IAML) in Wien unseren MT-Katalog dem Fachpublikum zu präsentieren. Wir laden die Kolleginnen und Kollegen ein, auch diesen Blog für ihr Feedback zu nutzen, und wünschen eine anregende Konferenz.

We are constantly trying to improve the search options in the MT-Katalog for our users and to integrate more source material. Our experience of realizing „Music Discovery“ may be a chance to support discussion on it. We are glad to have the opportunity to present the current state of our MT-Katalog at the IAML conference 2013 in Vienna to music librarians from all over the world. We invite them to post their feedback on our service to our Blog, and we wish everyone a wonderful and stimulating conference.

  1. Ich glaube, dass der Katalog der HMT Leipzig mit seinem Konzept der Integration vieler weiterer nützlicher Quellen in den eigentlichen Bibliothekskatalog nicht nur extrem hilfreich für eine umfassende Recherche in und außerhalb der Hochschulbibliothek ist, sondern auch ein wirklich zukunftsweisenden Konzept für die Musikmedienrecherche ist.
    Herzlichen Dank & Glückwünsche für die Arbeit von Anke Hofmann und aller involvierten MitarbeiterInnen der Bibliothek!

  2. Dear Barbara and Anke,
    We were very impressed with your presentation at the IAML Vienna conference! The recent improvements to the MT-Katalog should, we believe, serve as a model for the development of music library „discovery“ services—a resource very much needed in today’s digital environment. Music students, researchers, librarians and the general public will benefit greatly from having access to all music sources —printed music, recorded sound, databases and literature on music, regardless of format: printed or digital —organized in an encompassing and intuitive interface such as yours. It is extremely important that music librarians shape the future of how such „discovery“ systems are designed and presented to their users. We hope that the necessary resources will be made available to assist you in continuing the important and visibly productive work you have undertaken.

  3. The MT-Katalog is an international model for music discovery services. The interface is very focused on what music users need to find music. Your were very innovative in your use of data to make facets work for attributes music users need so much, for example musikalische Ausgabeform (musical presentation.) It is so important for music users to be able to distinguish musical presentation, but rarely do discovery interfaces make it possible, especially so cleanly as the MT-Katalog. Your facet for medium of performance (musicalische Besetzung) is also innovative. Medium of performance (voices/instruments used) is so important for music searching but, like musical presentation, frequently neglected. Music librarians all over the world work to solve these same problems. Your incorporation of external, music-related content from IMSLP and other sources is also noteworthy. Many current discovery interfaces incorporate external content, but the value of that content to music users is often marginal at best. The MT-Katalog, however, incorporates external content of high value to music users. These are only a few examples. I hope you receive continued support to develop the MT-Katalog, and also to share about it internationally. This project must continue! I am watching it and eagerly await the next developments.
