The Music Library Association invites proposals for titles to be published in the MLA Index and Bibliography Series, one of three monographic series co‐published with A‐R Editions. As always, all areas of musical study are welcome, though proposals are especially encouraged to address gaps in the literature in a variety of areas, including hip-hop, ludomusicology, international topics, and music scholarship in the digital humanities.

Since 1964, the series has published bibliographies, indexes, and other types of bibliographic references to music and music literature.

Recent titles in the series include An Index to Music in Historical Anthologies of Western Art Music, Parts 1 and 2 by Mara Parker (2019); Music for Silent Film: A Guide to North American Resources (2016) by Kendra Preston Leonard; Spirituals: A Multidisciplinary Bibliography for Research and Performance (2015) by Kathleen A. Abromeit; An Index to Articles in “The Etude” Magazine, 1883‐1957 (2011) by Pamela R. Dennis; Douglas Moore: A Bio‐Bibliography (2011) by Jerry L. McBride (winner of the 2013 Vincent H. Duckles Award); and The Guitar in American Banjo, Mandolin and Guitar Periodicals, 1882‐1933 (2009) by Jeffrey Noonan.
