International Directory of Braille Music Collections. Revised and Updated 1987.
Thorin Suzanne E., Comp.; Emanuel, Shirley Piper
This directory, in its revised and updated form, documents the existence of 46 braille music collections in 27 countries. The purpose of the directory is not to list specific braille music editions but to establish preliminary data that will facilitate the future compilation of an international catalog. Entries in the directory are arranged alphabetically first by countries, then by cities within countries, and last by organization names within cities. Each entry contains the organization name and address, contact person, description of the size and nature of the braille music collection, services offered such as producing braille materials and lending or selling materials, and notes about the organization's policies. The directory concludes with indexes that list the organization names, the names of organizations producing handcopies and press-braille music, and the names of organizations willing to lend or sell braille music to other organizations. A copy of the survey instrument which was used to gather the directory information is also included. (JDD)
