AHRC Networking Grant Awarded to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

AHRC Networking Grant Awarded to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Dr. Karen McAulay has been awarded an AHRC Networking Grant. The title of the fourteen-month project is Claimed from Stationers' Hall: The United Kingdom's Historical Copyright Music Collections. The project concerns sheet music surviving in British legal deposit libraries during the period 1710-1836 under the 1709 Copyright Act legislation. The project seeks to identify the patterns of survival in different libraries and to establish how accessible the material is through online catalogues. Exploring the history of British-published music in all British legal deposit libraries, this project also offers an opportunity for networking from all relevant disciplines, e.g., musicologists, music and rare books librarians, book and cultural historians. What happened to the music? What was sent to libraries? What was retained in libraries? And what use was made of it once it got there? Follow this fascinating project on Twitter (@ClaimedStatHall) and on the dedicated blog:
