I recently learned that my university's library is considering not renewing our subscription to RILM (which I guess is bundled within EBSCO, but I don't really know how that works...) after this coming academic year. As the only full-time music theory or musicology faculty member at my school, I'm having a hard time making an argument that they should continue an institutional subscription for little old me, and the students who take my upper-level classes.
I use RILM very, very frequently -- it's my go-to, first stop for searching out sources for research. I suspect I'm not alone in that! But I wanted to reach out to the theory community at large to see if any of you could recommend viable resources that can substitute for RILM? I've done a little searching through Google Scholar, and haven't been very productive there, but it's possible that I just haven't figured it out yet.
I don't think of myself as an "old dog with difficult learning new tricks," but maybe there are just new tricks out there that I don't know about...
Thanks for any help!
