The point of this website is mainly to let you know what’s happening at MEL. We’ll also tell you what’s in the collection and how to use it. We want to encourage DIY electronics as much as possible, so we’ll also post technical information about what we’ve built, to help you to make things for yourself.
The other major goal of the website is to document the history of MEL. This is partly to provide a resource for future musical electronics librarians. If you’re thinking of establishing a similar project we’d like to help you as much as we can. We’ll write about our philosophy and ideas, and why we’ve proceeded as we have, so that you can learn what’s worked for us.
