MIRACLE - Music and Information Resources Assisted Computer Library Exchange

"MIRACLE aims to develop a system allowing special libraries to access and download Braille music in digital form from a central database, drawing on the experience of the CANTATE and TESTLAB projects. Braille music is currently the only means the blind have for reading musical scores, but its production is labour-intensive and expensive. Four main Braille music libraries have formed a shared catalogue of Braille music and will cooperate on joining the digital files to a database so that they can be shared and accessed via the Internet. This approach will en-courage other major special libraries to join the system."
