The IASA Discography Committee is continuing its work on the online International Bibliography of Discographies - connecting members of institutions with private
collectors, and collecting information about worldwide discographic work in all languages. Collaboration is key in building the Bibliography, and we already benefit from a network of partners who share our goals for such a resource - peer associations, memory
institutions, individual collectors, and discographers. The first version of the Bibliography will be available on the IASA website by mid-2017. With entries submitted by our team and by members of our international network, it covers current and out-of-print
discographies published in book, article, CD-ROM, database and website formats. We have focused on bibliography due to the need for a full multi-lingual, international survey of discographies. But we are also creating a stored archive of digital (pdf) versions
of complete works which will be linked to their corresponding entries in the Bibliography. Workshop: We’ll provide an overview of the project (definitions and parameters), and offer some historical context for discography. We’ll review our online tools for
gathering bibliographic data on discographies, and demonstrate the live version of the Bibliography. We’ll show how full digital versions of discographies will be linked to the Bibliography - participants can submit digital versions electronically or send
print versions to our team for scanning. We’ll suggest other ways you can connect to our project, and discuss the advantages our network offers to both private collectors and public institutions. We would value your help and expertise!
