Collections, libraries and archives form central locations of multi-layered social interaction and cultural-historical processes. For this reason the structures of music collections were discussed in 2005 during an international congress in the context of cultural remembrance and investigated in view of the international discourse between the German-speaking area and Eastern Europe.

The first volume of the congress report offers three position papers which are informed by theory and then continues with a series of individual contributions which are initially dedicated to music collections from the Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Italy (South Tyrol), Austria, Slovenia and Serbia. The second volume rounds off this sequence with descriptions from archive stocks from Ukraine, Russia and Poland, from Slovakia and the USA. Finally the issues, statements and results of three panel discussions can be accessed in abridged form. – Each of the essays has an abstract attached in English (respectively German); in the case of translations or texts, which were written in German or English as foreign language, furthermore an abstract of the essay was added within the native tongue of the respective author.

The publication of this series is supported by the German Federal Representative for Culture and Media.
