DOMUS BANNER
DIRECTORY OF SOUTH AFRICAN MUSIC COLLECTIONS Print E-mail

Background

A lack of funding, staff shortages, and time constraints in the archives, libraries and document centres environment are all factors that inhibit research. This directory addresses these issues by collating information on special music collections in South Africa in order to stimulate music research on South African materials in South Africa and internationally. In an effort to cover the widest possible spectrum in music research, the directory provides the location and status of documents and collections.

This directory was initially part of a Masters study, funded by the South African Music Archive Project (SAMAP). It also draws on the technical expertise of Stellenbosch University Library and Information Service systems engineer, Wouter Klapwijk.

Although only a number of national, provincial and tertiary institutions are currently represented in this directory, DOMUS aims to expand the ddirectory by including further institutions in the aforementioned categories and private collections.

Search Tips and Updating Information

Keeping this directory updated and relevant is an enormous task; therefore, institutional cooperation is highly valued for the success of this project. Read more...
