    • Abstract:
      Using the writings of the French economist Jacques Attali as a basis, the author looks at the role of the music library in its political aspect as not only a reflection of the surrounding society but also as a predictor of the future since it, more than any other kind of library, has to keep abreast of the current developments in the field. As music becomes less the sole domain of the performer and more a form of social activity, music libraries preserve music in its contemporary cultural form and, especially, can preserve music's ability to social, ideological and cultural criticism, and prophecy.

    • Abstract:
      C'est en utilisant les écrits de l'économiste francais Jacques Attali comme point de départ que l'auteur examine le rôle de Ia bibliothèque musicale d'un point de vue politique, non seulement comme une réflexion sur la société mais aussi comme un indice de son évolution. La bibliothèque musicale plus qu'aucune autre se doit de se tenir au courant des développements actuels en la matière. Comme Ia musique n'est plus l'unique domaine de l'exécutant mais devient bien plus une forme d'activité sociale, les bibliothèques musicales conservent Ia musique dans sa forme de culture contemporaine, et peuvent particulièrement maintenir son pouvoir social, idéologique en même temps que sa vocation de critique de la culture et de prophétie.

    • Abstract:
      Der Autor benutzt die Schriften des französischen Ökonomen Jacques Attali als Grundlage, um die Rolle der Musikbibliotheken in ihrer politischen Tragweite, nicht nur als Spiegel der Gesellschaft sondern auch als Propheten der Zukunft zu betrachten. Denn mehr als alle anderen Bibliothekstypen müssen Musikbibliotheken irnmer am Puls der Zeit bleiben und sich den aktuellen Entwicklungen anpassen. Während Musik imrner weniger die Domäne des Künstlers bleibt, sondern sich mehr und mehr zu einer sozialen Aktivität entwickelt, bewahren Musikbibliotheken die Musik in ihrer jeweils aktuellen Form und damit auch besonders ihre Fähigkeit zu Sozial-, Ideologie- und Kulturkritik sowie ihr Gespür für die Zukunft.
