Hidden sources concerning Norwegian women composers

Sources concerning Norwegian women composers at The National Library of Norway are mainly not available from the Internet or digitized catalogues. The archival material was collected by the Library or given from the composers herself. The Database “Musbib” is indexing all Norwegian and Nordic periodicals from 1880. The guidelines for indexing are different from the publication RIPIM.


In addition to paperclips from newspapers and glossy magazines collected by the library from late 1800 you will find Scrapbooks from some composers. Concert programs since 1767 are maintained both from private homes and institutins. Manuscripts and printed music are partly registered in card-catalogues.
The library stores at least letters, photographs and pieces of art (sculptures,
paintings, drawings and prints).
