RIPM Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals with Full Text (1760-1966)
If the dream of the 1980s and 1990s was to bring to light the contents of an immensely important and complex corpus of literature, today it is, understandably, to bring the literature itself to one’s desktop, in a coherent, accessible format and with the speed of a mouse click. Thus, after many years of preparation for the immense task of digitizing and placing online the vast majority of journals that RIPM has indexed, the RIPM Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals with Full Text was released in May 2009. Today, it contains over 200 full-text periodicals published in twenty-four countries, and is updated every six months. For more on this resource, visit www.ripm.org.
