Description : Music librarianship¿a profession that brings joy and satisfaction to many¿is subject to constant change that requires, in turn, continual adaptation from its practitioners so that they become comfortable with new technologies and formats, changing standards, and fresh approaches. Relevant and solid training and education are crucial to success in this field, but they alone are insufficient to guarantee placement or promotion. Recent economic shifts have created additional instability, leaving graduates from programs in librarianship sometimes unemployed and with little feedback about the quality of their experience and education while their employed counterparts likewise have little knowledge of their skills¿ relevance to the current job market. Knowledge of training, education, and current employer expectations for music librarians can help ease such concerns and pave the way for a successful career or career change. As with the two previous editions of Careers in Music Librarianship, this volume provides career resources and guidance for current and future librarians, as well as insights for mentors and educators working with these populations. With this volume, the contributors provide a selection of readings that can help people in and considering this profession to make realistic, informed, and strategic decisions about how to succeed in it. As the profession changes, so must the professionals within it, and everyone involved with music librarianship will benefit from the guidance offered in this exciting, new book.

Description : American Music: An Introduction, Second Edition is a collection of seventeen essays surveying major African American musical genres, both sacred and secular, from slavery to the present. With contributions by leading scholars in the field, the work brings together analyses of African American music based on ethnographic fieldwork, which privileges the voices of the music-makers themselves, woven into a richly textured mosaic of history and culture. At the same time, it incorporates musical treatments that bring clarity to the structural, melodic, and rhythmic characteristics that both distinguish and unify African American music. The second edition has been substantially revised and updated, and includes new essays on African and African American musical continuities, African-derived instrument construction and performance practice, techno, and quartet traditions. Musical transcriptions, photographs, illustrations, and a new audio CD bring the music to life.

Description : "This book reflects a breakthrough in American music studies, an unrecognized field among traditional musicologists until the past few decades, during which enormous progress has been made in documenting three centuries of American musical activities and figures. Time and effort had to be expended exclusively on the development of basic historical studies. The time has come for a new phase, one that can take a creative, interpretive approach. Professor Crawford's study will introduce this higher level of scholarship into the field of American music studies."—Vivian Perlis, author of Charles Ives Remembered "A major statement by a senior scholar on what American musicology is all about. . . These themes are also topical; they come at a time when much more research is being done in American music, but little thought is being given to the big picture, the vision, the philosophy, and the implications of historical research. Now is the time for a synthesis, and there are few scholars better equipped to do that in American music than Richard Crawford."—Michael Broyles, author of Music of the Highest Class

Description : Excerpt from Music and Libraries: Selected Papers of the Music Library Association, Presented at Its 1942 Meeting Libraries of music are not new. For hundreds of years lovers of the art have assiduously collected manuscripts and books and scores which represented those manifestations that most appealed to them. Catalogs of musical collections are numerous, and bibliographic dis eussions of important musical imprints are far from uncommon. Nevertheless, the incorporation of music into the realm of active American librarianship is an achievement of the past generation or so. The very fact of this accomplishment naturally opens up untold problems and possibilities for librarians who, with music teachers and musicologists and will materially influence Amer ican musical culture in the years to come. This modest collection of essays can scarcely claim to be more than a short step toward affect ing that culture, but its appearance is surely an affirmation of music's increasing importance in the American library. The Music Library Association is happy to produce a volume' which is truly unprecedented in library literature. It is even happier to have secured the collaboration of the American Library Associa tion, the parent of all library organizations. A bright hope exists that these two societies will bring music new benefits through the affection of art-devoted librarians. Edward N. Waters President, Music Library Association. February 23, 1943.
