UMBC now has trail access to RIPM Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals, an international, highly annotated bibliography with detailed content analysis of writings on musical history and culture between 1800 and 1950--from Beethoven to Bartok, from Berlioz to Berg, and from Schubert to Shostakovich--all provided by internationally-recognized scholars and editors.
Published under the auspices of the International Musicological Society and the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres, RIPM treats primary source material found in music periodicals published in twenty (20) countries.
The trial runs through April 15, 2009. For off-campus access, please login via VPN first (http://vpn.umbc.edu). Then follow the link under "News & Events" on the library homepage. For more info on remote access, please see http://aok.lib.umbc.edu/services/remoteaccess.php
