IIMP and RILM to change searching platform

On December 20th, 32 library databases will migrate to a new and more powerful ProQuest platform. The affected databases are now hosted by ProQuest, CSA and Chadwyck Healey and include two music databases: International Index to Music Periodicals (IIMP) and RILM.

The new ProQuest platform will include the following:

  • The search tools are stronger; eventually, you will be able to search multiple databases at the same time.
  • The interface is flexible; we can have individual links to subject specific databases.
  • The database is smarter; it is able to predict your search as you type.
  • The platform provides new opportunities for research collaborations with shared lists and social networking tools.
  • All of this is designed to save you time and to improve your search experience and results.

  • Thursday, January 20, 12:10-1 PM

Location: Music Library Seminar Room.

If these days/times are not convenient for you, Sara is available by appointment (2-8686).
