Thanks to e-mail and the Internet, musicology, like the other
humanities, is crossing the threshold of a new era in the way research is
conducted. Information is being disseminated and shared at an amazing yet
sometimes alarming rate. Catalogues for many libraries and archives are
now on-line, at our fingertips. New, electronic "clubs" of musicologists
with shared interests are forming. "Electronic journals" are already
available in other fields.

How can musicologists use the Internet efficiently? What are the
advantages and disadvantages of electronic bulletin boards like the
AMSLIST? What are the legal ramifications in what we send on the
Internet? These topics, questions, and related issues will be discussed
at this symposium. There will be ample opportunity for questions and
discussion from the membership. The speakers are CUNY doctoral candidates
who are active, experienced users of the Internet for musical purposes.
