Welcome to the DISMARC portal!

For music archives, the future is digital. On-line access secures content owners a foothold in the marketplace, whether cultural or commercial. Europe’s cultural heritage deserves the widest possible exposure, and Europeana, the EU’s flagship cultural heritage web portal, supports this aim.

DISMARC aggregates music for Europeana. And not only music: DISMARC also aggregates music-related items including videos, photographs, books, documents and manuscripts. Via DISMARC, content providers (archives, broadcasters, museums, universities, research institutes, private collectors) open up their collections to the wider world.

DISMARC collects metadata from participating archives, maps it to a Europeana-compliant protocol, and stores it securely. By browsing DISMARC, users are able to simultaneously search all participating archives and collections, including Europeana.

Additionally, by leveraging the Europeana API, advanced searches can be carried out on Europeana content.

As a one-stop audio aggregation platform, DISMARC is free to all users and content owners.
