musiconn.publish serves the free electronic publication, reference and long-term archiving of musicological literature. This service is part of the DFG-funded musicology information service jointly operated by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Munich and the Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden (SLUB Dresden). It is available to all interested authors of the mentioned subject area. The service is part of the international Open Access movement.


Document Server of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek

The document server of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek provides you with further independent and dependent publications free of charge. The service offers not only digitized musicological and ethnomusicological works, but also born-digital documents, i.e. works that were intended for online publication from the beginning and have not appeared in print. The spectrum includes dissertations, postdoctoral theses, conference proceedings, and congress proceedings, e.g. the Music Encoding Conference Proceedings.
