The conference honors Barbara Dobbs Mackenzie’s 30 years of service to RILM, first as Editor, and from 1996 to 2022 as its Executive Director. Dr. Mackenzie has been instrumental in driving forward Répertoire International de Littérature Musicale (RILM)’s mission to document the world’s knowledge on all musical traditions, and to make this knowledge accessible to research and performance communities worldwide via digital collections and advanced tools. RILM’s collections aim to include the music scholarship of all countries, in all languages, and across all disciplinary and cultural boundaries, thereby fostering research in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
