Repertoire international de la presse musicale (RIPM).

This has been a very productive year for RIPM. In the past twelve months, fourteen titles were added to the Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals (Online) comprising some 30,384 new records. Two new titles were added to RIPM In Print bringing the total number of volumes to 284. And, eight full-text titles were added to the RIPM Online Archive which now contains 108 music journals.

The new publications treat two German music periodicals, three English, three Italian, two French, three Spanish (including Mexico and Guatemala), one Dutch, one Greek, and one Russian. Among the year's highlight are the ten new volumes, produced in collaboration with the Taneyev Library of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, treating the important Russkaia muzikal'naya gazeta (St. Petersburg, 1894-1918), and the two volumes treating Musica e musicisti (Milan, 1902-1905), the continuation of the already-indexed Gazzetta musicale di Milano. An Index to the earliest work treated by RIPM, Johann Adam Hiller's Wdchentliche Nachrichten und Anmerkungen die Musik betreffend (Leipzig, 1766-1770), was published online as was RIPM's first index to a Flemish Dutch title published in Brussels, the Muziekwarande (1922-1932).

The RIPM e-Library of Music Periodicals

During the past twelve months much effort has gone into the development of the forthcoming e-Library, a full-text supplement to the online Retrospective Index and Archive. The new electronic publication is designed to treat lengthy and complex journals, journals from countries that may not have been able to contribute to RIPM, and those the content of which does not necessary conform to that of RIPM's other publications. The e-Library will contain many journals that required extensive research to reconstruct in full. We anticipate release of the eLibrary in 2013.

Finally, RIPM received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (USA) to continue its indexing work on twentiethcentury European music periodicals, and those published in the United States.
