RILM will host pre- and post-conference virtual information sessions, as well as an in-person happy hour, at the 66th National Conference of The College Music Society (CMS) in Miami, Florida, 26–28 October 2023.
On Tuesday, 17 October, at 6:30pm EDT, RILM staff members Elizabeth Martin-Ruiz and Michael Lupo will lead an interactive pre-conference virtual information session entitled Craft an Effective Program Note with RILM, which introduces RILM’s products–RILM Abstracts of Music Literature, RILM Abstracts with Full Text, RILM Music Encyclopedias, MGG Online, and the Index to Printed Music–by demonstrating how each can be used in the process of writing a program note.
On Friday, 27 October, from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, RILM will host a happy hour in Exhibition Hall. Attendees can catch up on the latest RILM news, review the benefits of RILM’s resources, ask questions, and discuss issues related to RILM’s virtual sessions.
Following the conference, on Thursday, 2 November, at 6:30pm EDT, Liz and Michael will return to host a post-conference virtual session called The Final Stop in the Publication Process: Adding Your Abstracts to RILM, which provides some tips and guidelines for abstract writing, and shows how music researchers can ensure that their publications, abstracts, and reviews are included in RILM Abstracts of Music Literature.
Throughout the conference, Liz and Michael can also be found at the RILM booth in the Exhibit Hall. Stop by to learn more about all of RILM’s resources.
