About this project:

This Music Information Retrieval Annotated Bibliography Website is a Web-based, two-level collection of annotated bibliographies:

Why MIR needs these bibliographies:

Research and development in Music Information Retrieval (MIR) is such a multi-disciplinary area that we have difficulty keeping track of the work being done in all the disciplines. With this "Music Information Retrieval Annotated Bibliography", we hope to enable the much needed communication across the disciplinary boundaries by providing a) bibliographic control of the MIR literature and b) an important mechanism for members of each discipline to comprehend the contributions of the other disciplines. With the tools provided here, we are able to uniformly represent the important scholarly papers found in the MIR fields. By promoting such communication, MIR will be in a better position to fully realize the benefits that a multi-disciplinary research and development community offers.
