Agreement has been reached between IMSLP and the Werner Icking Music Archive (WIMA) to merge, with the result that WIMA’s entire collection of files will be moved to IMSLP. These consist of some 65,000 scores and many more audio files, meaning that WIMA will end up as IMSLP’s biggest community project.
The Werner Icking Archive is in no way dying – it’s simply moving to a new home, one that will provide WIMA contributors with many advantages, such as IMSLP’s highly active community and detailed categorisation system.
The merger of 65,000+ files into IMSLP will be a Herculean task. IMSLP cordially invites volunteers to help with the file transfer. Please see the forum thread if you would like to take part – your efforts would be greatly appreciated.
