This article is a position paper addressing the author's plan to build a collaborative multimedia database of Maltese music. The proposed collaborative project will use wiki technology to capture a living archive of past, present and future works of interest in connection to music from and in Malta. Such a project raises various critical issues related to intellectual property rights, preservation policies and techniques, technical infrastructure strategies, and other similar topics. Research on these issues is directed through specially developed postgraduate research studentships, which will ensure the project's longevity.
