IJM mission

The IJM has been conceived as a digital archive for music performance students and professionals and is a pioneer in this field. There are other similar resources specialized in music education, but no other specialized in performance. With the IJM, music students pursuing a career as a performer have an online platform through which the first-hand experiences of leading performers can inspire them through a multitude of articles, interviews, videos, and even lessons.

The digital nature of the IJM—all content is exclusively in electronic format—allows participating libraries to free up physical space and reduce the costs associated with storing collections, thus significantly improving access to information.
