RILM Abstracts of Music Literature
RILM Retrospective Abstracts of Music Literature
This comprehensive music bibliography features citations, abstracts and subject indexing. It provides broad yet detailed coverage, and facilitates both focused research and browsing for readers of all levels. 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 Abstracts of Music Literature’s coverage spans 1967 to the present, and the database is updated monthly. However, the documentation of conference proceedings goes back to 1835, and further retrospective coverage is planned. Since its first publication in 1967, RILM has covered articles in over 11,000 journals, many of which are not specifically devoted to music. 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. Comprehensive coverage includes music-related articles published in conference proceedings from 1835 through 1966; articles in Festschriften celebrating music scholars from 1840 to 1966; and articles in anniversary volumes published in honor of musicians, composers and institutions dating back to the 18th century. Journal articles and other document types will be added on a monthly basis.
