About this project:
This Music Information Retrieval Annotated Bibliography Website is a Web-based, two-level collection of annotated bibliographies:
- The core research bibliography brings together those papers identified as being germane to the MIR as a nascent discipline.
This contains papers about:
- MIR system development,
- experimentation ,
- and evaluation, etc.
- The second level (or background bibliographies) is a set of discipline-specific bibliographies.
Each discipline-specific bibliography in the set will provide access to background materials necessary for non-expert members of the other disciplines to comprehend and evaluate the papers from each participating discipline.
- For example: music librarians can have access to audio engineering 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.
