A comprehensive acquisition area of the Specialized Information Service for Musicology (FID Musicology) lies in the licensing and provision of subject-relevant digital media (databases, e-books, e-journals, primary online editions of sheet-music prints). The variety of databases and full-text offerings (books, journals, sheet-music prints, audio collections) has been bundled in the Virtual Library of Musicology (ViFaMusik) since 2004. Through the establishment of new modules (e.g. document servers, topic portals), it was expanded into the subject portal musiconn.de (since 2018) for the FID Musicology.
The inventory of conventional media (e.g. printed music, books, journals) and sound recordings will continue to be built up in the future.
In order to simplify research - especially by means of the New Music Acquisitions - and to present the subject classification of main topics more transparently, you will find the subject classification of our musicological media here:
