  Course Description
Beginning with an overview of the history and literature of music librarianship and music libraries, the course addresses the materials of the music library: their selection, acquisition, and physical treatment. Emphasis is placed on the cataloging, classification, and subject analysis of music, books about music, sound recordings, and related formats. Emerging formats and bibliographic relationships also are explored. An examination of public services in the music library addresses reference, bibliographic instruction, circulation policies, reserves, and outreach such as exhibits and concert series. Music library equipment, renovation, and space planning are discussed the context of facilities. Considerations of music library administration included the music library¿s relationship to a larger institution, budgets and statistics, personnel, and development. Careers in music librarianship and opportunities for professional development are also explored.
