Support from RILM for the New Academic Year

Dear music-research community,

As you are getting ready for the upcoming academic year, RILM offers the following support:
  • Schedule a live online bibliography class on a topic of your choice for your seminar, taught by one of RILM’s staff members. To put in a request, contact
  • Take part in our office hour. Each week, a RILM staff member will be available to help with questions on how to utilize our resources for music research and bibliography. Visit our Facebook page and join the group “Bibliography Buffs” to get access to the room. Start date: 19 August.
  • Sign up for the YouTube channel “RILM Resources” for introductory videos and tutorials about our products.
  • Download the teaching guide PowerPoint with information and recommended searches.

No matter what your topic is, we offer hands-on searches, live Q&As and tutorials, and video and PowerPoint information on our virtual reference shelf, RILM Music Encyclopedias, MGG Online, RILM Abstracts, and the Index to Printed Music. We help you to prepare for your class, to lay the groundwork for your paper, and to find answers to difficult research questions. And we are happy to add additional videos to our channel upon receiving suggestions.

Wishing you a great semester!
