The source material is presented in two databases: Articles, Books and Theses and Periodical Reviews. The search engine (for databases marked "Updated 2021") allows you to find detailed information, such as: text title, author's name, periodical title, date of publication, subject of the text, names of composers and names of performers to whom the text relates. The results obtained in the previous task (2016-2017) will be presented in the old form (on the left side) until the descriptions are transferred to the databases. It allows users to organize the material according to their search needs – clicking the arrow in the lower right corner of the column header arranges the material according to the alphabetical arrangement of data in that column. This function is available when the edit mode is on.

Both databases contain descriptions of materials found in the following periodicals: Audio Video Hi-Fi 1984-1990, 2018-2019, BBC Music 2003-2021, Canor 1992-2004, Dysonanse 1999, Fonorama 1990-1994, Fragile 2008-2016, Glissando 2004-2016, Gramophone 1923-2021, Jazz 1957-1982, Jazz Forum 2020-2021, Klasyka 1998, Kontrasty 1972-1988, Meakultura.pl 2015-2019, Muzyka 1929-2014, Presto 2012-2019, Poradnik Muzyczny 1947-2006, Ruch Muzyczny 1946-2021, SAT, Audio, Video 1991-1996, Sound and Vision 2001-2003, Studio 1992-1995, Śpiew w Szkole 1961-1966, Wychowanie Muzyczne 1975-2021, Wychowanie Muzyczne w Szkole 1967-2010, Życie Muzyczne 1976-2009, Życie Śpiewacze 1951-1969; and others, including many prewar periodicals such as: ABC, Antena, Dziennik Poznański, Dźwięk, Kino, Kurjer Poznański, Kurjer Warszawski, Muzyka Polska, Nasz Przegląd, Radjo, Robotnik, Świat, and Wiadomości Literackie.
