Thanks to the latest innovations in telecommunications technology, we have access to a world of resources that are not physically housed at Duke. Here are some relevant and engrossing resources on the subject of women and music that can be found on the Internet through the World Wide Web. Also included is the Ladyslipper Listen Line, a telephone service that offers browsing access to the world's best catalog of music by women.
A non-for-profit contemporary music information and resource center, this site contains membership and grant information, NEA news, opportunities, publications, and more. Not exclusively for women, but a good way to find out the latest happenings in the music world.
This resource on women in music includes information on membership, publications, opportunities, other women's music organizations, course syllabi for women in music courses, bibliographies, discographies, historical information on women composers, and future festivals. One of the most comprehensive women-in-music sites on the World Wide Web.
