Swiss RISM - Répertoire International des Sources Musicales

Characteristics
History: 

RISM-Suisse, Répertoire International des Sources Musicales has been founded in 1956.

Inventory: 

The aim of the Swiss RISM is to inventory the largest number of musical sources and to make them accessible to the public.

Since its foundation the Swiss RISM branch has recorded systematically prints before 1800, collective prints of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and other works about music, manuscripts after 1600 as well as prints of the 19th and 20th centuries.

RISM operates as a service. Projects are developed and implemented in collaboration with the institutions (libraries, archives, monasteries) that own the sources.

The Swiss RISM has an online catalogue, with simple and advanced search.
