Thread Name: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
Subject: RE: TheVWML and its importance
It's greatly to the credit of EFDSS that they have made some of their collections available to internet users on the Take 6 site. However, there is a huge amount of material in the library - in the form of unpublished collections, rare books and sound recordings - that is not available on the web (Mudcat is very useful but hardly bears comprison) or easily accessed anywhere else. Incidentally, I think you'll find that many of the books there DO include contemporary songs.
Also, of course, you get the expert assistance of the library staff, whose knowledge is second to none. It's indipensible.
