General register of earlier music sources (1600–1850) preserved in the Republic of Slovenia

Collection description: About 6000 earlier manuscript music works survived in the territory of the present-day Slovenia. These, together with a number of extant earlier music prints, now form the general fund of the national early music heritage in Slovenia. Old music manuscripts stored in archives at various locations throughout the area of Slovenia were first inventorised at the Institute of Musicology in the form of a loose-leaf catalogue, containing around 1500 units. In 1993 the Institute joined the international documentation-musicology project RISM (Répertoire international des sources musicales), based in Frankfurt-am-Main, which collects and presents such kinds of materials on an international basis within the series A I (Music Prints before 1800) and A II (Music Manuscripts 1600–1850). For this purpose a regional committee of RISM (the regional group for the inventory of manuscripts, seated at the Institute of Musicology) was founded in 1993 for the Republic of Slovenia. Since then the members of the Institute have continued to catalogue these materials within the most up-to date computer systems, and supplement documentation with additional contents. The results of the RISM project are accessible online: The work for RISM has no special financing and is performed as part of the infrastructure programme of the Institute of Musicology, as part of projects and program, and is at times supported by state and municipal grants.

Collection description: Informally, the archives of the Slovenian Biographical Lexicon (SBL) already began to operate before 1925, when the first volume of the lexicon was issued. In the desire for the lexical entries to be based on the latest data, the editorial board decided to send questionnaires to the still-living creators. The questionnaires and materials that the authors of articles on prominent Slovenes collected for the lexicon were the foundation of the archives, which have been operating for nearly ninety years. At the end of 2012, the treasuries of written, printed, photographic or otherwise recorded documents on prominent Slovenes or individuals who were importantly linked to Slovenian culture and actively engaged in our political, cultural, scholarly, economic and other kind of development, contained about 14,560 files (personal and family collections). Each year, about 3000 existing files are upgraded with new materials – mostly clippings from periodicals, folders, brochures and other kinds of ephemera with biographical data – and more than 250 new ones are opened.
