A question often asked of EarlyMusicNews.org is of linking to our Weblinks pages rather than developing a weblinks page of your own. The answer in all cases is of a resounding “yes” and of our approval.
Consider this, to-date, there are over 2600 early music related websites listed on our weblinks pages; these sites are indexed into 48 different categories; the index is verified once or twice yearly by our own weblinks bot in order to identify any dead links; there are tools for site visitor feedback as to the information of the weblinks as well as to identify any dead links that may have not been found by our bot. While this verification process is not perfect, it does help in keeping the weblinks URL data as accurate as possible.
Why would you want to use our weblinks pages as you very own weblinks page on your site? It releases you of the tedious task of maintaining such a page while still allowing your input of its content. You may propose any missing early music weblink(s) as well as identify changes of pre-existing weblinks’ content or URL.
So, if you wish, go ahead and feel free to link to our weblinks page. After all, the idea of organizing the EarlyMusicNews.org weblinks is to make the early music community known to our website visitors and help disseminate any other information that connects us to all that is of early music.
