Abstract

The folk song archives in all of Austria’s provinces are in charge of large collections of songs and melodies from a research period dating over one hundred years. To make these useable and accessible, a comprehensive archiving system and scholarly registration of the complete collections had to be created on the basis of musical-poetical figures, text- and music genres, functions, and occasions. The Virtual Network of Folk Song Archives in Austria enables access to all the catalogues of the connected archives with their unique and specific regional collections, and establishes documentary evidence of the great variety of songs and melodies associated with Austria.

Arhivi ljudskih pesmi v vseh avstrijskih zveznih deželah skrbijo za velike zbirke pesmi in melodij, pridobljene v raziskavah iz več kot stoletnega obdobja. Da bi bile uporabne in dostopne, morata biti izdelana celovit arhivski sistem in znanstvena registracija vseh zbirk na podlagi glasbenopoetičnih figur, besedilnih in glasbenih zvrsti, funkcij in priložnosti. Virtualno omrežje ljudskih pesmi v Avstriji omogoča dostop do vseh katalogov med seboj povezanih arhivov, skupaj z njihovimi edinstvenimi in posebnimi regionalnimi zbirkami, in s pomočjo dokumentov predstavlja veliko raznolikost pesmi in melodij Avstrije.
