What does digital change look like in libraries? For music libraries, the digitization of notes and phonograms of own collections for copyright reasons is only possible with regard to very old manuscripts or historical phonograms.
At the same time, libraries understand themselves as mediators in dealing with digital media. In support of this role, the Berlin Senate allowed the Berlin district libraries and the Central and State Library (ZLB) to purchase up-to-date hardware. Thus, a case full of iPads is in use for library tours.
The lecture session will deal with a new format, which we will design, test and launch in April 2017 with the support of the Research Center for Mobile Music Making & App Music (at the Berlin University of the Arts). It contains short workshops in which library visitors can get acquainted with selected music applications, which are placed in relation to the scores of the ZLB.
