What's the score? — When musicians talk about a score, they probably have something specific in mind, but they may not tell you! Here we show you different types of scores and instrumental parts. Music in library catalogues — understanding the entries Copyright — how it applies to music CDs — caring for and promoting your collection Music enquiries — Do you quaver, or get crotchety? We remind you of general enquiry techniques and how they apply to music, and suggest information sources, both printed and electronic. Find the answers — a practical enquiry session

  • Presentation on working with music in libraries The Branch offers presentations to departments of library and information studies and other interested organisations as part of its educational remit. These were established because music librarianship is no longer taught as a discrete subject within UK Universities. We offer a short presentation which gives an overview of the main issues involved in managing music collections and what career opportunities are available in music librarianship. The presentation also provides a chance for students to ask questions about music librarianship and debate current issues with a practitioner in the field. The lecture can either be offered as part of a course module or as a free–standing guest speaker slot Why? In today’s library world librarians are often called upon to work with or manage several subject areas without necessarily having an in depth knowledge of them. You may find yourself responsible for a music collection as part of a broad humanities post or as part of a performing arts collection. Content Look at the different types of music library that exist - National/academic/conservatoire/public/special/publisher hire - characteristics Look at the contents of a music collection – that is, the different types of material that you may find within a music collection – and particular issues to understand e.g. 3 month holdback on Cds, different types of score Examine the different challenges that are presented in managing a music collection Musical language – universal – emphasise wide appeal of music and no special expertise needed to enjoy it – inclusive – only th written musical language needs to be taught Variety of formats Music sets Staffing Presentations began in 2006 – 16 have now been given across 8 library schools in the UK and Ireland
