American Library Association Choice Review
We were happy to discover that the Irish Sheet Music Archives website was reviewed in the recent issue of the American Library Association's Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries. Here's a snippet of J. G. Matthews' of Washington State University Libraries assessment:
"This archive's design is consistently elegant, uncluttered, and richly illustrated. The potential for such a resource is enormous: scholars of 19th-century visual culture, printing, publishing, illustration, design, technology, and history--as well as music performers, composers, and historians--are richly served by this archive... This resource possesses value and relevance far beyond its scope, because in addition to being an invaluable source for Irish music, the site sets a precedent for online archive design and functionality."
