RILM Office Hour

Each week, RILM welcomes students, teachers, music researchers, and librarians to help with questions on how to utilize our resources for music research and bibliography. No matter what your topic is, we offer hands-on searches on our virtual reference shelf, RILM Music Encyclopedias, as well as in MGG Online. We guide you through RILM Abstracts and the Index to Printed Music. We help you to prepare for your class, to lay the groundwork for your paper, and to find answers to difficult research questions.

Days and times vary from week to week. To attend, join RILM’s Facebook group Bibliography Buffs and watch out for the weekly announcements.

If you would like to schedule a webinar outside our office hour, please write to us at
