RIPM Enhances Access to Historical Music Periodicals

A new interface for the RIPM Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals (1800-1950) is now available directly from RIPM Publications ( Containing some 550,000 annotated records, the index offers access to the content of more than 130 music journals, with new journals added every 6 months. The new interface was designed by RIPM specifically for easy and intuitive access to the recently released RIPM Online Archive of Music Periodicals (Full-Text). The RIPM Index and Online Archive were designed to function as a single entity, with many features not available elsewhere. The interface operates in two browser windows, making it possible to view search results and journals pages simultaneously.

RIPM Online Archive of Music Periodicals (Full-Text) is a full-text version of journals indexed in the RIPM Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals. The archive's first installment contains 51 rarely available music periodicals selected by specialists. The archive is a unique collection of primary source material for the study of music and musical life and is the only extensive collection available online of music periodicals dating from the Early Romantic to the Modern periods, from Beethoven to Britten and from Haydn to Hindemith.

Created with the cooperation of libraries worldwide, the RIPM Online Archive offers an almost daily chronicle of musical activities, with immense possibilities for original research. It provides high-quality grayscale images using the latest technology to create digitized versions of these difficult-to-obtain music periodicals. The RIPM Online Archive allows researchers to explore its content while viewing images that convey the historical nature of the documents.

RIPM is a nonprofit organization functioning under the auspices of the International Musicological Society and the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres. RIPM's principal function is the coordination, editing, and publication of the RIPM Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals (1800-1950) and the RIPM Online Archive of Music Periodicals.
