Libraries & archives

The official catalog of the sheet music sector

As a specialized information service, when creating acquisition lists, or when periodically checking your current inventory. For libraries, archives and other public institutions, when researching, it is particularly important not to receive preselected content, but rather the up-to-date original information with identifying numbers (ISMN, ISBN etc.) directly from the publisher in a comprehensive catalog. Ideally from a single source which, for the sake of completion, also shows if an item is no longer available.

With the IDNV you get that and so much more. The IDNV is the official research and ordering system of the sheet music industry. In one large database it combines more than 600,000 items and 800,000 single titles of original catalog data from international publishers. Via the data exchange, the editorially maintained data is always up-to-date.

Detailed up-to-date catalog data

The IDNV-Catalog offers optimal assistance to overcome the challenges presented to librarians of sheet music. This is thanks to up-to-date data with plentiful item information, price information, covers, example pages, sample scores, and descriptive texts. The IDNV is topped off with useful additional functions such as a notepad to make a list of interesting items in your own database or reference lists to find and select composers and instruments.

The IDNV-Catalog - up-to-date, high quality and standardized data with the ideal tool for fast searching and specialized information services.
