What Do Musicologists Do All Day

In What Do Musicologists Do All Day (WDMDAD) we investigate 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.

For this, we have created a short questionnaire, in which we would like you to tell us about your ideas and experiences. Whether you do not use much technology, or if you use it a lot, we are interesting in finding out your views. Please take our questionnaire at https://opinio.ucl.ac.uk. We much appreciate your participation.
