International Bibliography of Discographies

The International Bibliography of Discographies (IBD) is a searchable e-resource containing entries for current and historical works of discography. The focus is on commercial published recordings, but discographies of unpublished recordings, transcription discs and field recordings are also included in the bibliography. In the IBD you will find label, artist, genre and national discographies in multiple languages and formats (books, articles, CD-ROMs, PDFs, websites, databases), as well as record label catalogs. Our objective is to give researchers and collectors one resource for finding information about published discographies, and also, when available, unpublished work in progress. The IBD was created in 2017 by the Discography Committee of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA), and it is now a collaborative project with individual and institutional contributors around the world.

Each entry in the IBD corresponds to one work of discography, whether originally a print journal article or a large online database. Commercial record catalogs currently appear alongside discographies, though they will likely be moved to a separate section eventually. Each discography entry includes title, author, publication date and a note about availability (or a link to an online version) on the initial results page. The title for each entry also serves as a link to more detailed information and an annotation about each discography or catalog. We have created a Digital Discography Collection at the Internet Archive to store discographies that contributors or members of our team have digitized as part of the IBD project.

Entries with digital copies at the Internet Archive show this logo:
