  "abstract": "<p>IncipitSearch is a search engine for music-incipits. Incipts are a pragmatic approach for the cataloguing of notated music, in which a few bars of a score are transcribed. Concurrently, statements about the melodic characteristics of the music can occasionally be made on basis of these short fragments. Still, the IncipitSearch considers itself primarily as a counterpart to conventional thematic-bibliographical catalogues, as they have been presented in printed form for a long time.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Integration of repositories </strong></p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>\n\t<p>different types of repositories (digital / analogue source catalogues, work catalogues etc.)</p>\n\t</li>\n\t<li>\n\t<p>different types of integrated data (RDF/XML, MARC XML, HTML)</p>\n\t</li>\n\t<li>\n\t<p>data aggregation via custom crawlers or IncipitSearch RDF metadata format in Turtle Serialization</p>\n\t</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p><strong>IncipitSearch API </strong></p>\n\n<p>&bull; all aggregated content available as open data</p>\n\n<p>&bull; JSON API: elasticsearch endpoint</p>\n\n<p>&bull; can be used to implement incipit search functionality in other repositories</p>\n\n<p><strong>RDF metadata format </strong></p>\n\n<p>&bull; using vocabulary to add semantic information to web content</p>\n\n<p>&bull; data type MusicComposition with own extension MusicIncipit</p>\n\n<p>&bull; JSON-LD serialization to enrich web output</p>",
