MusicBrainz



If I were in academia and about to set up a DB for my own evaluations the first thing I’d do is to obtain the MusicBrainz IDs for each track. In the long run it seems like the best way to have a common basis for sharing annotations and other metadata. Even Last.fm will (hopefully soon) support those IDs and then it will be really easy to access the correct tag data (and all the other metadata) for the corresponding tracks. Btw, I heard McGill has already started working with them.

We are using them here at Sun, and I know Doug and his team in at the University of Montreal are using them as well,
