All instruments from the University of Edinburgh Musical Instrument Museums' collection are catalogued within MIMO (Musical Instrument Museums Online). A new search facility will shortly be added to this site but for the time being the MIMO site offers the simplest way to access information about individual instruments in our collection. Alternatively, printed catalogues of the collections are available via the link below.
To search the MIMO database, select Advanced Search on the top right left of page.
Under Instrument Identification, select University of Ediburgh from the Data Provider drop down list (page 5 of 5).
Search by instrument title, keyword or free search.
On the Search Results page, select the magnifying glass on the right of the page to view an instrument record.
You can also search by instrument classification, instrument history or collection.
