The Mahler online repository consists of a constellation of sub-projects that are networked with one another. The core content of Mahler online is the newly designed catalogue of Gustav Mahler's works (Gustav Mahler Werke, GMW). This fills a major gap in Mahler research.

For each work Mahler online contains information on the genesis and the morphology of the work including incipits encoded in MEI (Music Encoding Initiative), on the sources (including links to digital copies) and on the performances during Mahler's lifetime. A directory of reviews, letters and work-related literature is linked to the repository. The repository is also going to present data and resaearch results from the project Multiple Dimensions in Performances of Mahler’s Symphonies. Developing Resources on the History and Analysis of Mahler Performance, including complete discographies of Mahler's works as well as performance-analytical data created in this project. Also included are links to the digital catalogue of the IGMS archives. All data is encoded in XML (MEI or TEI) and is recorded by the MerMEID editor developed by the Danish Royal Library, Center for Music Editing, and the Austrian Center for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage of the OeAW. Mahler online is an Open Access project.
