Produced by Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale, 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.
Detailed Coverage of a Wide Variety of Publications and Media
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.
Sound recordings and motion pictures that present the results of scholarly research or fieldwork are also included.
