The library does not always prioritize the functions of information, education, research, reference, and recreational facilities full of science but also having a mission of ?Let?s Read?, because there is no big nation without reading fondness of the people in it. The library gives opportunities for the people to get information as learning materials through library materials so it can be useful to improve the people life quality.

Salemba, Jakarta?Music can not be separated from human civilization. In fact, it can be said that there is no history of human civilization without music. In Indonesia, music is very closely related to the local culture so that it appears in various musical traditions. This diversity is believed to be the strength of Indonesia in international world. Indonesian music assets should be inventoried properly so as not to be claimed by other countries.
Although a lot of variety in traditional music, but awareness for reporting creation, or piece of music that has been created is still minimal. Why did it happen? Because there are many parties who do not realize the importance of every form of musical works to be registered in order to gain international recognition.
In Europe and United States, music has become a culture that can not be underestimated. Music is not only registered as intellectual property rights, but also registered internationally through the International Agency for Standard Music Number or ISMN, which is currently located in Berlin, Germany.
ISMN is an international numbering system to distinguish the music creation and its music creators. ISMN is designed for the processing and handling of printed sheet music and representing bibliographyc data. ISMN numbers is also evidence that the works belongs to the creator and will not easily claimed others.
The importance of ISMN can be seen from the case of song “Lenggang Jakarta,” which became an icon of Jakarta Provincial Government tourism. Harry Sabar, the owner of the song, said that he has not received any appreciation for his work from Jakarta Provincial Government. To avoid any misuse, upon the request of National Library, in 2014, Harry Sabar registered 100 of his works, including song Lenggang Jakarta to get ISMN numbers, as well as to be archived.
Harry thought that his works shall be deposited because humans will extinct but documentation in library will last and can be seen and studied by future generations. ?There are many musicians who do not know the benefits of ISMN. Therefore, he invited musicians to document his works.?
eputy of Literature and Information Service Development of National Library Welmin Sunyi Ariningsih said that Law No. 4 year 1990 on Handover ? Maintain of Printed Works and Recorded Works (KCKR) requires all results of KCKR of the nation must be submitted to National Library or Regional Library. Deputy I of National Library recorded that during 2014, library only received 63 submissions to be registered into ISMN system. This figure is lower than the one in 2013 that received 71 submissions.
Welmin explained, “before songs are recorded, musicians shall submit their songs musical scores to National Library in order to obtain ISMN. The process for getting ISMN is not difficult, musicians simply bring their recording works to National Library or by registering via National Library website.
“There is no reason to not make archive of the works at National Library because the process is easy and free, she said when attending ISMN Talk “Stepping in Rhythm to Preserve the Indonesian Musics?, at Theatre Building of National Library, Jakarta, (31/3).
The seriousness of Commission X of Indonesian House of Representative who control education, tourism, sports, arts and culture is questioned. To what extent their effort to assist government to preserve the nation’s works. Krisna Mukti, members of Commission X of Indonesian House of Representatives from PKB Fraction explained that their party continues to coordinate with the Commission III (Law, Human Rights, and Security) to form a Working Committee (Panja) to deal with the piracy mafia, particularly in terms of music.
Since 2002, National Library has conducted ISMN socialization. However, each year, the progress is still slow, unlike ISBN which is increased significantly. ISMN membership until the end of 2014 reached 108 publishers. This may be due to the lack of understanding on ISMN or it may be caused by the lack of awareness of musical actors to register their musical works in ISMN system.
ISMN follow ISO 10975 standard, in which the ISMN numbering was created in 1993 in analogously with ISBN system. ISMN can be applied with 13-digit international EAN barcoding system.
At the end of the activity, National Library give ISMN paspartu to Titiek Puspa, Linda Djalil, Latifah KM, Reika Meany, Harry Sabar, and Didong from the bridge of North Sumatra in TMII). The talk was enlivened by the performance of composer Rieka Meany, musical performances from Titiek Puspa- fostered children, performance of brandjangan musicians, angklung saung Sam Udjo, and traditional music from Dayak Namwei tribe.
Salemba, Jakarta?Poetry as a culture manifestation can essentially play role as a reminder and soul driver based on the truth and honesty. It is as stated by poet and poetry curator, Sosiawan Leak during road show of Memo untuk Presiden(MUP) in the Hall of National Library, (25/3).
Attending in the book review were KPK deputy chairman Johan Budi Kusuma, Head of National Library of Sri Sularsih, members of the House of Representatives Commission X Jefritson Riwu Kore, representatives of National Narcotics Agency (BNN) Dikdik Kusnadi, activists of mall reading park Dewi Hughes, and poet Kirana Morning.
KPK deputy chairman Johan Budi Kusuma said that the poet spirit in writing poetry anthology of Memo Untuk Presiden are equal to the spirit of the Corruption Commission to eradicate corruption in Indonesia. Specifically, Johan Budi challenged artists to translate Law on Corruption to be made as poetry. Likewise for National Library institutions, Johan Budi inserted messages to participate actively, such as holding a talk show to combat corruption. “Such discussions, although simple, was very useful for improving people’s knowledge about the dangers of corruption,” Johan Budi said.
MUP contains a collection (anthology) of poetries from 169 poets who were successfully screened from 218 entering contributors. This 476-page book represents a clear voice of people, the voice of era and the voice of truth. “Poetry can serve as moral guardians for all those involved in the life of the nation,” Leak said.
Roadshow of MUP book was accompanied by episodes of National Library Friends which has been echoed since May 2014. Previously, Library Friends has collaborated with the Community of Women Poets on the launching of poetry anthology “Perempuan Langit”, and then, together with Indonesian Cartoonists Association (PAKARTI), and the last at the launching and review of book Layanan Cinta : The Realization of Library Prime Services. This time, the Library Friends invited Archipelago Poet Community led Dyah Kencono.
Library Friends will continue to encourage the active role of the scattered communities to assist the task of developing National Library and to attract people to love reading. Library is no longer an exclusive agency but it must be able to ensure and facilitate the transformation of community-based information. “it means that, the library development must be adapted to the needs of society through the application of information technology and library technology and friendly service,” said Director of NLI Sri Sularsih.
This apology is offered and developed in an effort to realize intelligent life through diversification of library services that is accessible and affordable by public in an easy and inexpensive way reaching into remote areas without exception.
It is no doubt that this time many literature lover community emerges. It doesn?t matter with how much their cultural spirit and productivity. Dialogues such as book review are very useful because it can enrich the poet creativity. They need the touches of other works. “It is sort of trigger”, Leak continued.
The existence of poets can not be separated from the National Library.
Their existence also determines the progress of reading interest development process. Therefore, National Library then make a special portal for Indonesian Literature Documentation that can be visited on via National library website: perpusnas.go.id. This portal contains the famous literary figures from various generations of the country, their contributions, and phenomenal works that could be used as references for literature lovers.
Library Friend Program is one of the superior program to attract visitors and people who care about the libraries for future. The improved civilization of a nation depends on how the society and the State treats Library.
