RISM's B/III (The Theory of Music) Now a Database

We have received this announcement from our colleague Christian Meyer:

The catalogs of manuscripts described in RISM's series B/III (The Theory of Music, 6 vol., Munich: G. Henle, 1961-2003), published online in 2001 through the Lexicon musicum Latinum (LML), is now available as a database.

The HTML pages and the transcriptions of texts that were in PDF were revised in the fall of 2017, edited, and updated. They are now available on the website Musmed.fr.
