| ||'Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is one of the most thoroughly researched composers of Western music from diverse points of view. Even for the scholars working in the field of "Bach Studies", it is often felt to be a formidable task to move on to a "different" subject, since so much has already been discussed in the past. Thus the first task -- finding out the state of the current research in the field -- can be a daunting task.|
'Due to the way the bibliographical studies have been carried out and published in the past (see the history of bibliographical research below for further details), it is unlikely that Bach scholars will ever see a comprehensive, definitive single-volume book in this subject in the future. In fact, it is an extremely impractical to manage the information in a single printed source, for new articles and books appear very frequently, and the amount of information has become too large for browsing. This electronic publication project is precisely aimed at maintaining the most up-to-date information, with advanced search facilities not previously available.'
As of 12 March 2009, there were 30,006 records in the bibliography.

| ||'Mapping the music resource of the UK and Ireland Cecilia is an on-line guide to music collections in archives, libraries and museums in the UK and Ireland.|
'To date the Cecilia database contains over 1800 collection records, representing collections held in nearly 500 institutions, but this represents the tip of a very large iceberg. For example, we have discovered that the range of music materials held in local authority and university archives, often forming a small part of much larger collections, is much more extensive than was previously thought and we have so far only been able to include records from a sample of each of the three domains. With this in mind, Cecilia provides a means for anyone with a collection of music materials to add to the database, or to amend existing records.'
