Introduction | Questionnaire Summary | Field Agenda | Readings /Websites


With your help, we're working up a great bibliography of web sites. It would be very helpful if we all looked at these resources beforehand so that we will have a common starting point as we gather in Washington to survey the field and think about the future. We have the most exciting area of all, poised as it is between performance, publication, education, and entertainment.

The TML, which provides fully searchable texts for music theory written in Latin from the time of Augustine through the sixteenth century, is one of the largest full-text databases (5,000,000 words of text and more than 4,00 graphics) of literature; it averages more than 1300 visits and 700 searches per month.

DDM-Online, which is also fully searchable, contains more than 10,000 records and averages more than 5,000 searches per month. SMI and Musical Borrowing are smaller and newer projects. Both the CHMTL and the TML have been Scout, Webivore, and Schoolzone selections; the TML has also been the recipient of two substantial NEH grants (in 1992 and 1994).
