ITMA 25th Anniversary
From the ITMA website, in celebration of the Archive’s foundation 25 years ago today:
‘As of today, it is possible for users world-wide to search online the Contents of ITMA’s core Irish holdings for all the song titles, tune titles and dance titles etc. that they contain.
‘These core holdings are its Irish traditional commercial sound recordings, and its printed song collections, instrumental music collections, dance collections and instrumental tutors.
‘This huge extra body of online information constitutes another unique international resource and public service in Irish traditional music provided by ITMA. Over the course of the next year Content information will be added online for other categories of its holdings, commercial and non-commercial. With today’s substantial addition, the ITMA online catalogue now contains more than 750,000 content items of data searchable here (http://www.itmacatalogues.ie/).’
