Music and Performing Arts Online Portal

August 8, 2007

Now you can search the International Index to Music Periodicals (IIMP) and the International Index to the Performing Arts (IIPA) together on one site.

Of course you can continue to search them separately as well, if you wish.

Additional new features:
1. On the Search Articles page, you can now limit keyword searches to citations only or to article full text only in order to perform more focused searches. Results can be sorted by relevance, oldest or most recent record first, and alphabetically by journal title. Sophisticated filters make it easy to narrow down the results and find relevant entries.

2. To save records and searches for future use, create a My Archive profile.
You can log in at any time to add or delete items.

3. Subscribe to RSS feeds in the What’s New area to receive regular product updates, such as information about new journals and functionality.

NYU Libraries subscribes to the Music Online series, a collection of databases that includes thousands of audio clips that users can listen to online:

The Classical Music Library
“fully searchable classical music resource—a comprehensive database of distinguished classical recordings. It includes tens of thousands of licensed recordings.”

Smithsonian Global Sound
“virtual encyclopedia of the world’s musical and aural traditions”

African American Song
“With jazz, blues, gospel, and other forms of African American musical expression represented, African American Song brings 50,000 tracks of music to the ears of library patrons and music scholars.”

American Song (coming soon)
“includes music that relates to almost every walk of American life, every ethnic group, and every time period.

NEW: Classical Scores Library
“contains 400,000 pages of the most important classical music scores, manuscripts, and previously unpublished material, allowing for the study and analysis of more than 8,000 musical scores. Many items have associated audio tracks in Classical Music Library, so that subscribers to both databases can listen to a recording online while following along with the full score.”
