Repertoire International De Litterature Musicale (RILM)


Mackenzie, Barbara Dobbs, Fontes Artis Musicae


Overview: It is an exciting time at RILM. Our core bibliographic coverage continues to expand; the RILM national committees remain a central part of our international coverage, and their submissions remain stable (though we always hope for more submissions and new committees); subscriptions are solid, and usage continues to grow. And there are some new projects afoot!

Author submissions: RILM strongly encourages authors to submit records of their publications directly into the database by using the forms at http://rilm.org/submissions /index.html. Through these forms, authors can create new bibliographic citations and add abstracts and reviews to existing records. In 2013-14, several hundred main publication records were submitted by authors, as well as a handful of abstracts and reviews to existing RILM records. Be sure to check that all of your publications, and those of your colleagues, are represented in RILM.

Committees: National committees submitted a total of 35,309 bibliographic records, 16,444 abstracts, and 5415 reviews this year. This is a huge increase over last year (when they submitted 15,284 new bibliographic records, 11,824 abstracts, and 1949 reviews). This major increase is due primarily to a large file of over 20,000 records sent from the German committee in January 2014 after a hiatus during which the committee was changing its selection criteria and technical specifications to conform to RILM data specifications. In addition to the records from Germany, several other committees significantly increased their submissions this year, including Austria, Canada, China, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Japan, and Poland. Countries that submitted over 1000 records since 1 July 2013 are China (5115), Germany (20,809), Russia (1516), and the U.S. (2313).

We are delighted to announce the establishment of several new or revitalized RILM committees:

* Cuba: Tamara Sevila Salas from the Centro de Investigacion y Desarrollo de la Musica (CIDMUC) and Rosa Marina Gonzalez Valdes from the Casa de las Americas have agreed to contribute records for Cuban publications.

* Taiwan: The chair of the previous committee in Taiwan, Kuo Chang-Yang, passed away in 2011. His daughter Kuo Yun-ling is helping to re-establish the committee at the Department of Music of National Taiwan Normal University, along with PeiJung Wu, Chen Wen-chong, Lee Chinghuei, and Lin Hsuen-Fu.

* Australia: At the IAML conference in Vienna 2013, Denise Tobin and Linda Pape expressed interest in restarting the Australian committee. They are just beginning to submit some records to RILM.

* Sweden: Also last year in Vienna, Kerstin Carpvik and Lena Nettelbladt from Stockholm came forward with an initiative to revitalize the Swedish committee, and they, too, have begun work.

At the moment critical areas with scarce coverage in RILM are the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia, and we would welcome any contacts or suggestions for establishing RILM committees in these regions. In addition, a number of committees are unable to keep up with the scholarly research being published in their countries. If you would like to get involved in the RILM project, we would welcome your participation. Please be in touch with either Zdravko Blazekovic (zblazekovic@rilm.org) or Barbara Dobbs Mackenzie(bmackenzie@rilm.org).

RILM abstracts of music literature: This year, some 45,000 new main records and 3,500 review records were added to the RILM abstracts of music literature database. Total record count as of 1 June 2014 stood at 773,692 records.

RILM retrospective abstracts of music literature: Since its launch last year, RILM retrospective abstracts of music literature has been updated with ca. 350 new records every month. RILM Retro has very strong coverage of conference proceedings and Festschriften written in honor of music scholars. Among the document types added since launch are articles in journals not indexed by RIPM, including: Acta musicologica, Musical quarterly, Archiv fur Musikwissenschaft, Sammelbande der International Musikgesellschaft, Journal of the American Musicological Society, Jahrbuch fur Volksliedforschung, Canadian music journal, Bouwsteenen and tijdschrift der vereeniging voor Noord-Nederland's muziekgeschiedenis, Anuario interamericano de investigacion musical, and Revista musicale Chilena. …
