    International database for printed music and musical products (IDNV)
    The IDNV is the official database of the sheet music sector. The IDNV is supported by the music publishers, the music trade and both associations (GDM and DMV) in its conception and operation. As an industry project, the IDNV is initially intended primarily for commercial and public users, i.e. for publishers, trade (business to business - B2B) and for music libraries. For them, the IDNV simplifies important daily tasks, optimises communication and saves time. The existence of the IDNV also has a positive effect for musicians, choir singers, orchestras, music schools - in other words, for all music professionals, amateurs and music lovers. Thus, shops that work with the IDNV have an optimal instrument for advising and informing their customers. Through the IDNV, every affiliated dealer receives the latest catalogues, prices and information directly from the participating publishers, updated daily and in high editorial quality. Through the electronic ordering system of the IDNV, the retailer is efficiently connected with the publishers and the deliveries, i.e. the procurement of material is also carried out optimally and as quickly as possible for you as a customer.
    Trading companies that work with the IDNV are therefore a very good contact point for the purchase of sheet music.
