About

Bibliolore is hosted by Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM), whose mission is to document and disseminate music research worldwide through its suite of digital resources.

Simply by virtue of what we do, RILM editors have a unique perspective on music literature, and we launched this blog to share our observations with people who might find them interesting and relevant to their work. Bibliolore includes subjects of practical interest to music researchers and librarians and writings on music that have piqued our curiosity or made us smile, along with original contributions from our team of musicologists.

Most posts have direct relationships to content found in RILM’s resources, which include our flagship RILM Abstracts of Music Literature and its enhancement, RILM Abstracts with Full Text, as well as RILM Music Encyclopedias, MGG Online, and Index to Printed Music. Reflecting the myriad knowledge contained in these resources, we seek to offer a diverse mix of writings. In turn, we welcome comments.

In short, Bibliolore is a forum for sharing the useful, the amusing, and the thought-provoking.

    I’m just wondering: what does ‘Bibliolore’ means?

    • “Biblio” is a prefix indicating that “book” modifies the rest of the word (e.g., bibliography) and “lore” can indicate shared knowledge (e.g., folklore); it’s a perhaps illegitimate mashup that represents this blog’s purpose–to share knowledge about interesting publications in our database.
