Music Database trials until December 31st

We currently have database trials to the Music Index, Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM), and RILM Retrospective Abstracts of Music Literature running until the end of December.

Formerly The Music Index Online by Harmonie Park Press, the Music Index provides comprehensive coverage of the music field and every aspect of the classical and popular worlds of music.  Featuring digitized content from 1970 to the present, the Music Index contains cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts of articles about music, musicians and the music industry for more than 480 periodicals. It also provides selective coverage for more than 200 periodicals.

From hip hop to Händel, from ethnomusicology to music therapy, from elementary music education to advanced music theory, RILM is the first stop for the researcher who wants clear, verified bibliographic information that is fully cited, abstracted, and indexed.  RILM includes over 700,000 records, and over 40,000 new records are added every year.

RILM Retrospective Abstracts of Music Literature, a bibliography of music articles, collections, and books published before 1967, offers researchers and music scholars nearly 20,000 records from a critical period in music research.  It matches the scope and format of RILM Abstracts of Music Literature, but its coverage specifically focuses on all document types published before 1967.

Please email or call us (256-824-6529) if you would like access to these great resources!  And don’t forget to let us know what you think!
