I am wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with Optical Character Recognition for Music Notation (or OCM). It sounds like a really neat idea and am interested to try it out although it seems to me that there is a fairly large cost barrier to doing this and also that it takes a lot of time. I just read Andrew Bullen’s article “Bringing Sheet Music to Life” My Experiences with OMR” in Code4Lib Journal – Issue 3. Prior to reading this article I had not heard about this technology. I think it would be neat project to digitize some of the sheet music in the collection in our archives at the library where I work. Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
