A Film About RILM - Quality Music Info for Students and Researchers

RILM: Cool for Music School

Musicians, are you a student, researcher or educationalist?
If you've been a music student for a while, you've probably already heard of RILM - a database containing abstracts (summaries) of articles and other publications about music.  You can search by keywords and authors - it's great, a really useful service.  You'll find the link to the Whittaker Library RILM subscription on our library databases page, and also on our Mahara e-resources page, accessible to staff and students at the Royal Conservatoire of ScotlandWe've put a brief guide on the Mahara server, too. 

However, it's also worth noting that there's a video about it on the RILM website.  Access it HERE.

If you're a researcher, or publish scholarly writings about music, here's something you might have forgotten about: You can upload your own abstracts directly to RILM via their  submissions page.  It gets your scholarship 'out there' faster, and helps raise your profile - what could be better?  Upload abstracts of your published music writings HERE.
