9780810850040: Careers in Music Librarianship II: Traditions and Transitions (Music Library Association Technical Reports) (v. II)

The late twentieth-century brought significant changes in the way music is marketed, consumed, taught, and studied. These changes have had a natural effect on the ways that libraries serve their music-loving populations. This resource examines the profession as it responds to these changes, without losing sight of the human element within it in a collection of essays that provide a practical introduction to the profession of music librarianship, and a survey of current professional philosophies and practices. Topics include: preparing for the field, mid-career options, professional organizations that support the work of music librarians, the music librarian of the future, and thoughts on the value of the work that music librarians do.

Music librarians informally describe their day-to-day activities, from maintaining the musical scores for large performing organizations to creating public programs. Speaking with enthusiasm for their chosen profession, these librarians represent a group of professionals that enjoy a special relationship with the materials they work with and the people they serve. A necessary resource for aspiring music librarians, as well as established music librarians looking for a dose of inspiration and current information on the state of their profession.

Review:

Librarians and students interested in a career involving music should check out Careers in Music Librarianship II: Traditions and Transitions. Editors Paula Elliot and Linda Blair and their team of 11 essayists introduce the field to newcomers as well as librarians seeking mid-career options. The writers share opinions and advice on what employers want, how to become a music librarian, the issues involved in moving between academic and public libraries, and the music librarian of tomorrow. (American Libraries)

...chapters are well-written and include some good ideas...This book will be useful for students or beginning librarians interested in music librarianship. It may also be useful for professionals who want to read about issues and questions in the field. I would also point to the excellent extensive bibliography...I would recommend this book for large public and academic collections, or for a library science collection. (CAML Review)

...an excellent resource for today's understanding of music librarians. (Fontes Artis Musicae, Vol. 54, No. 1)

Folksy, erudite, dry, amusing, and informative....recommended.... (Music Reference Services Quarterly, 2005 (vol 9, no 3))
