Digital Conversion of the MMF Catalog(s) Continues
The Moravian Music Foundation and Moravian Archives Research libraries (the books in the reference stacks) have been physically combined, integrated, and classified according to Library of Congress classification. All physical items (monographs, journals, and scores) have been cataloged in the OCLC WorldCat bibliographic database (nearly 1 billion records from over 10,000 libraries). As of April 7, 2015, MMF and the Archives are represented by 41,079 digital records. Our online catalog (a work in progress) is called GemeinKat (http://moravianmusic.on.worldcat.org).
