Retrospective Abstracts of Music Literature, a bibliography of music articles, collections, and books published before 1967, offers researchers and music scholars more than 21,000 records from a critical period in music research. Comprehensive coverage includes music-related articles published in conference proceedings from 1835 through 1966; articles in Festschriften celebrating music scholars from 1840 to 1966; and articles in anniversary volumes published in honor of musicians, composers and institutions dating back to the 18th century. Journal articles and other document types will be added on a monthly basis.


UCI’s Scott Stone (stonesm@uci.edu) is the resource liaison for the RILM Retrospective Abstracts of Music Literature, along with RILM Abstracts of Music Literature and RIPM Online Archive of Music Periodicals.
