Hi Vaughan,

There is a significant amount of information in the MEI guidelines about how FRBR is implemented in MEI:


The online catalogue of Carl Nielsen’s works is a great example of how libraries can use MEI to present extensive musical metadata online using MEI.

Hello all,

This is my first time posting on the list-serv.

My name is Vaughan Hennen - I am pursuing a dual masters degree in Library Science and Information Science from Indiana University Bloomington.  My bachelors degree is from the University of North Texas in cello performance.

The project that I am presenting, is about MEI and its application in today's music libraries.

I have done reading on what MEI is and how it is applicable in music libraries, but I am still not clear on its use in music libraries.

Would any of you offer some insight about how music libraries use MEI metadata or how the extensible language adds to the library?

Thank you for your help.
