Database Trial - Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals

RIPM was established to provide access to eighteenth-, nineteenth- and twentieth-century periodical literature dealing with music and to facilitate and encourage research based on this often neglected documentary resource. While the importance of this immense body of literature has long been recognized by the musicological community, RIPM represents the first effort to undertake and to coordinate retrospective periodical indexing on an international scale.

Trial Expires May 10, 2017
