IMSLP's Community Projects consist of a variety of different projects; scanning of scores, logo removal and uploading, uploading from private sources, and acquisition of scores from various websites. Most people can contribute to most of these projects, although some require certain access. You may even start your own project, just make sure to follow the guidelines.
To participate in this valuable work, simply list your name on a project's page, and start uploading. You will need to follow these simple steps:
- Identify the edition. Check for existing copies on IMSLP.
- Download the files, rename them properly.
- Create new work pages if necessary and start uploading.
- Be sure to enter new entries in Edition Pages and Work Lists.
- Check completed folders or files on the project page.
