MIMO: Musical Instrument Museums Online

Single access point to digital collections of musical instruments held in European museums.

MIMO
The aim of the MIMO project is, through the European Digital Library, to create a single access point to collections of amd information about musical instruments held by European museums. Europe has developed its culture of music over many centuries and integral to that development are its tools: musical instruments. Collectively, the European museum collections hold the largest number of these objects in the world and, as such, represent a key part of the world's musical instrument heritage. As yet, there is no common access point for anyone wishing to explore the collections online, nor is there any common standard for the online presentation of musical instruments. Taken as a whole, this important heritage is currently only accessible to scholars and museum professionals through research via the individual museums: MIMO seeks to address that problem. Through the targeted digitisation of well-defined groups of instruments it will create a common, easily accessible source for information on musical instruments.
