What Do Mu­si­co­lo­gists Do All Day

In What Do Musicologists Do All Day (WDMDAD) we are investigating the use of technology in the work of music researchers in the widest sense.

Researchers frequently make use of the possibilities that mobile phones, social media, digital libraries, search engines and computer software offer. But these technologies do not always have a good fit with daily work practices. We would like to discover what needs to be done to make this fit better, and what successful practices already exist that we can learn from. We first did a survey on this topic in 2014-2015. Our present survey will provide some insights into how you have responded to the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether you do not use much technology, or if you use it a lot, we are interested in finding out your views.

To participate in our survey, please visit https://opinio.ucl.ac.uk/s?s=76752. The questions are in English: you can respond in the language you feel most comfortable with. We would very much appreciate your participation and help in circulating this survey to music researchers worldwide.
