Hi,

Over the past 6 months I've been working the State Library of Tasmania
Sheet Music Collection.
It is now finished and can be view at
http://greenstone.statelibrary.tas.gov.au/.
Would it be possible to add it to the http://www.greenstone.org examples
page?

Here is a description from our site:

This site makes available about two hundred items from the rich holdings
of printed music in the State Library of Tasmania's Heritage
Collections. They range from the 1840s to the 1930s and include pieces
for piano and other instruments, brass band arrangements and songs of
all sorts - popular, sacred, patriotic, and even songs written to
encourage tourists to come to Tasmania. Most of the pieces are
Tasmanian, but they also include a few written and published in
Melbourne and Sydney. More than a third of them are by one composer, the
extraordinary Frederick Augustus Packer (1839-1902) teacher, Hobart City
Organist and the dominant figure in nineteenth-century Tasmanian musical
life.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who developed
Greenstone and on the list for their great support in helping me to
develop the collection.

Regards,

Ben Dwyer
