BACKGROUND

Many Digital Libraries have long offered facilities to provide
multimedia content, including music. However there is now an ever more
urgent need to specifically support the distinct multiple forms of
music, the links between them, and the surrounding scholarly context,
as required by the transformed and extended methods being applied to
musicology and the wider Digital Humanities.

The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) workshop presents a venue
specifically for those working on, and with, Digital Library systems
and content in the domain of music and musicology. This includes Music
Digital Library systems, their application and use in musicology,
technologies for enhanced access and organisation of musics in Digital
Libraries, bibliographic and metadata for music, intersections with
music Linked Data, and the challenges of working with the multiple
representations of music across large-scale digital collections such
as the Internet Archive and HathiTrust.
