Wat zeggen bibliotheken:

“I cannot tell you how thrilled we are about PWRB. It has inspired great enthusiasm about how to implement activities at Hopkins surrounding what it has revealed, and might help to continue to reveal at an important time.”

Earle Havens, Johns Hopkins University

I do want to thank you personally for including music in the USTC. Those partbooks are challenging to catalogue, but they add a key element to the larger picture, as you know. The USTC has changed my research life!

Kate van Orden, Harvard University

“Thank you so much for your mail! You did say, when we met, that an old collection like ours was bound to contain something interesting, but this is remarkable!”

Ernst Berkje, Oslo Cathedral School

“We knew that our 150,000 patrimonial items were a treasure of unique items, but we could not imagine such a considerable number.  Be assured of our greatest gratitude for your very important and very useful work for the library, the community of researchers and bibliographers.”

Bibliothèque Méjanes, Aix-en-Provence

“This extensive list is a remarkable resource … Our major exhibition in 2018 will focus on a selection of the most intriguing and unusual items highlighted by your list.”
