RIPM e-Library of Music Periodicals™is now available from EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO). RIPM e-Library of Music Periodicals is a collection of rare primary source documents offering music researchers access to a special selection of full text music journals unavailable elsewhere.
The first installment of this collection includes 150,000 pages from 25 music journals dealing with musical life in world capitals: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Bilbao, Brussels, Budapest, Lisbon, Madrid, Milan, New York, Prague, Paris, St. Petersburg and Warsaw. The collection also contains several monumental journals including Musical America until 1922, Le Guide musical (Brussels, 1855-1919), the Neue Berliner Musikzeitung (Berlin 1847-1896) and several early musicology periodicals. Future titles will include those focusing on instruments, genres, musicology's early periodicals, music education and jazz, with others combining both musical and non musical content, such as theatrical and general arts journals. New titles will be added on a regular basis.
With RIPM e-Library of Music Periodicals, music researchers will gain access to a unique collection of periodicals not covered in RIPM Retrospective Index and RIPM Online Archive of Music Periodicals. Libraries that subscribe to RIPM Online Archive of Music Periodicals in calendar years 2013 and 2014 will receive the RIPM e-Library of Music Periodicals at no additional cost for two subscription years. The e-Library is one part of a suite of full-text music journals offered by RIPM.
The RIPM e-Library of Music Periodicals brings the total number of full-text publications available in RIPM to nearly 150 journals, adding almost 40 percent new full-text content to those titles in the RIPM Online Archive.
Founded in 1980, the Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals (RIPM), provides information concerning more than two-hundred years of musical life in Europe and the Americas by preserving and providing access to the contemporary musical press. One of only four internationally-sanctioned cooperative bibliographic undertakings in music, RIPM benefits from the collaboration of scholars and institutions in over twenty countries, an editorial headquarters in the United States, and active research teams throughout Europe and the Americas.

This message is a reminder of a previously communicated change in the network domains and IP addresses for EBSCO services, wherein we requested customers update firewall exceptions and proxy servers to reflect an updated list of domains and IP addresses.
On 15 November 2013, EBSCO is scheduled to complete the final phase of a systems upgrade that will result in changes to the domain name for some areas of EBSCOhost. The intent is to provide additional access points to improve response times for EBSCOhost users.
While we expect customers updated their systems in conjunction with our previous communication regarding the upgrade in 2012, to ensure that no customer experiences an interruption in service, we are asking customers to verify that your local systems reflect the information listed in the Support Site link below.
Note: this upgrade does not affect URLs targeting the search.ebscohost.com domain, which includes locally-hosted search boxes and EBSCO-generated persistent links.
We are writing to inform you that on Saturday, 19 October 2013, EBSCOadmin will be unavailable while we perform service upgrades. The service window is scheduled to begin at 7:00 AM EDT (-04:00 GMT) and you will experience intermittent access to your EBSCOadmin account until the upgrade is complete and full service resumes. We anticipate resuming full service by 5:00 PM EDT (-4:00 GMT).
All EBSCOhost databases and interfaces will be available during the service window.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience during this important upgrade. Please feel free to contact us if you need any assistance.

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is making the government database ERIC available during the government shutdown. ERIC, the Education Resource Information Center, is typically available through the government website (http://eric.ed.gov/) as well as via EBSCO's EBSCOhost® research platform. Because of the shutdown, access to the full text of articles and other materials will not be available but researchers will have access to the full set of A&I records on EBSCOhost. Users going to http://www.ebsco.com/freeERIC will now see ERIC listed among the other free EBSCO databases such as GreenFILE™ and Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts™ (LISTA).
ERIC provides access to educational literature and resources including access to information from journals included in the Current Index of Journals in Education and Resources in Education Index. It was designed as a national information system to provide access to education literature and resources. According to its website, "ERIC is the world's largest and most frequently used education digital library." ERIC provides more than 1.4 million bibliographic records and dates back to 1966.
