Bach references appear very frequently. It seems obvious that publishing the work in a printed form would quickly become out of date. Considering the benefit of having various search facilities, it has to be published on the internet, so that it could be updated frequently. This internet service started on 5 May 1997. The search engines are created by Malcolm Vincent.
In September 2000, I read a paper at International Bach Symposium Utrecht 2000 (Universiteit Utrecht, Netherlands) entitled "Setting up Research Resources for the future: On-line Bach Bibliography Project and International Collaboration", in which I outlined the details of my future plan of its expansion. An abridged version is published in Ariadne, xxvi (Dec.2000). A revised version of the paper was presented at the IAML conference in July 2003. [PDF + PPT].
