New Ovid Arts Package agreement is available

The Ovid Arts Package is a collection of four Arts and Humanities 'Abstract and Indexing' databases, currently provided on the SilverPlatter platform. Each resource is available individually or can be combined and subject to a multi-product discount.

The Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA) presents contemporary literature from 1973 to the present day on the visual arts from the 4th century to modern times. The BHA database indexes and abstracts art-related books, conference proceedings, dissertations, exhibition and dealers' catalogues, and articles from over 4,300 periodicals.

The Abstracts of Music Literature (RILM) covers international music scholarship, presenting significant writings from 1969 onward in the area of music - historical musicology, ethnomusicology, instruments and voice, performance practice and notation, dance, music therapy, theory and analysis, criticism, librarianship, and pedagogy. Sources include all types of media ranging from articles and ethnographic recordings to congress proceedings.

The Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals (RIPM) provides annotated indexes to the content of complete runs of music journals published in 17 countries between approximately 1800 and 1950.

The International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) contains four databases of global film scholarship, featuring the International Index to Film/TV Periodicals.
