a RIN reminder about the Concert Programmes project

The Research Information Network has posted a timely reminder about the Concert Programmes Project Online (phase 1) - particularly of interest to musicologists, or anyone curious about performers of the past.
online database of holdings of concert programmes in the UK and Ireland. Currently, it holds 5,500 collections of music related ephemera held by 53 institutions including the British Library, the Royal College of Music, the Royal Academy of Music, the national libraries of Scotland and Ireland and the Bodleian Library and Trinity College Dublin. It includes material from the end of the 17th century to the present day. Its detailed search facility allows users improved access to previously inadequately catalogued and therefore underused material.
