Index to Printed Music, relaunched

EBSCO and Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale have recently released an enhanced version of the Index to Printed Music (IPM), the digital finding aid for searching specific musical works contained in printed collections, sets, and series.

The upgraded IPM includes several new features:
• Detailed records for each volume now include tables of contents, links to series, and complete publication information.
• Users may search for either individual musical works or whole collections of printed music from the main search page.
• Links between different record types provide easy navigation from the most granular details of individual pieces to expansive views of entire series.
• Records for pieces that are available as part of open-access editions include hyperlinks to those editions.
• Expanded search filters enable users to refine their searches by place and date of publication, document type, genre, and language of text.
• A new series authority table enables browsing of series records.

If you have questions about IPM or would like to arrange a free trial or subscription for your institution, please contact your EBSCO representative or email
