Trial database: RILM Retrospective

WomanAtHarpsichord370wForWPRILM (Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale) is an important database for music and music history, allowing users to find books, articles, and book chapters from an array of international publications back to 1967.

The library is currently trialling RILM Retrospective, which adds citations to materials published between 1830 and 1966. It includes music-related articles published in conference proceedings from 1835 through 1966, articles from Festschriften beginning in 1840, and journal articles from 1849 to 1966. The bulk its citations are from journals whose issues appearing after 1967 are already indexed in RILM, so it extends the content of those publications.

Because both RILM and RILM Retrospective are EBSCO databases, you can also search them simultaneously by going to “Choose Databases” (above the search box) once you are in EBSCO.

Trial active through June 30.
