Flemish Music Institute
The Flemish Music Institute aims to be an overall catalog incorporating Flemish scores, music books, magazines, recordings and archives from various collections. The catalog should enable you to search through different repositories and collections with Flemish musical heritage with one search. Currently, the catalog contains descriptions from the conservatory libraries of Antwerp and Ghent, from the Heritage library Hendrik Conscience, the library of Antwerp University and other Anet libraries, and also the city archive of Dendermonde, Letterenhuis, the Art academy of Asse en several private collections. The aim is to index or catalogue as many collections as possible.

Meanwhile, some Flemish music magazines have been excerpt at article level, like Muziek-Warande (1922-1931), Orgelkunst (1978-2008) and Musica Antiqua (1983-2000). About 1,900 items were thus made available, so that information that was difficult to trace so far is available online. In addition, systematically rare scores, librettos and books are scanned and electronically made available through the VMI catalog, allowing the user to view them from home and, if necessary, print. Currently more than two thousand works are available electronically and it is the intention to add a new documents each month. So to be continued ...
