Hi again Steve:
    It occurred to me that the Harry Fox Agency already has a database of
mechanical licensing (recordings) of music.  Could some of what we are
talking about be tapped into or used by that database?  Or build on that
data?  Not sure if one would be able to access it.

This would be possible, in fact, since modern databases (i.e. MS Access)
allow binary fields. On one level, this seems illogical; the function of a
catalog is to inform the user(s), including the holder of the collection,
what the collection contains and where it is, rather than to BE the
collection.
However, given the effects of Moore's Law on both computers and storage,
it would be possible to duplicate the collection in a sound version of
"thumbnail" form as a field in the catalog database.

It would probably be possible to use a similar program to create a
non-internet
search engine to do the same sort of search but over a defined and limited
domain
such as a catalog/database. In effect, this makes the catalog/database an
intranet. What could be searched for/on could be defined when the "miniature
search engine" was built.

This assumes a HTML format for the catalog, at least...although similar
searching is possible in database programs if those are used for
cataloguing.
Remember that there will be users for both the archive, if it is accessible
via the internet (this could be done via FTP rather than having an HTML
archive)...and users for the catalog as a data source. If, for example,
someone is simply trying to establish when Song A was popular and who
recorded it at the time, they would only be looking for information as
opposed to the sound itself!

Not necessarily...see above! There are other uses (and users) of the data in
a catalog rather than users of the archive. When I first created my Dating
Guide, I used ADBD as a data source on the dates certain record numbers were
issued based on the applicable recording dates in spite of the fact I only
owned a few hundred of the listed records. Even though a 1939 Sears catalog
is useless for buying goods, it contains a wealth of information about the
goods then available!
