We at the International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP) believe that music should be something that is easily accessible for everyone. For this purpose we have created a music library to provide music scores free of charge to anyone with internet access, with several other projects in planning. IMSLP is also entirely collaborative, and all contributions are greatly welcome.

Sound Library (Stephan Schütze):

My goal is to create a large online audio resource centre that is beneficial to all users from students and amateur users to casual professional users and large studios with a regular need for high quality material. By offering the entire library free in its download format as well as offering DVD sets for purchase I can provide a high quality resource for students and casual users to access free, while professionals gain instant access to the complete library for  well below the average cost  of high quality professional sounds.
