Think Music & Beyond: Interdisciplinary Research in the Age of Full Text

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

RILM and EBSCO invite you to take part in the free webinar “Think Music & Beyond: Interdisciplinary Research in the Age of Full Text”. This webinar is part of EBSCO’s Inspired Webinar Series, which explores research challenges unique to each field of study and solutions which can commence in the library.

This session will focus on RILM Abstracts with Full Text and RILM Music Encyclopedias, two resources with full text that are widely used by researchers active in ethno/musicology and the performing arts, but in light of their scope are relevant for researchers in a variety of disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. We will learn from Tina Frühauf, Ph.D., a musicologist and editor, how RILM’s resources support interdisciplinary research.

Presented by: RILM, EBSCO, and Library Journal
Event Date and Time: Wednesday, 7 April 2021 | 2:00-3:00 PM ET, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM PT

The event is free, advance registration is required.
