"The Dictionary of North American Hymnology (DNAH) is a decades-old project of The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada that aims to index all hymnals printed in North America to 1978. With its 5,000 hymnals and over 1 million hymn instances, the DNAH is now housed at Hymnary.org. The current editor of the DNAH data is Tina Schneider, Director of Research of the Hymn Society."--hymnary.org
The project comprises four sources for research: an index of first lines of hymns from 1640 to 1978 with a supplementary index 1978 to present; a bibliography of some 5000 hymnals published in America (1817 denominational + 3192 non-denominational); an author file; and a biographical file.
