For music archives, the future is digital. On-line access to content secures a foothold in the marketplace, whether cultural or commercial. Europe's cultural heritage deserves the widest possible exposure. For this reason the European Commission has created Europeana, the EU's flagship cultural heritage web portal.
DISMARC aggregates music for Europeana. As a one-stop audio aggregation platform, DISMARC's attributes are unique, and are free to all users and content owners.
As well as music, DISMARC also aggregates music-related items; videos, photographs, books, documents and manuscripts are all part of Europe's cultural heritage.
