The Education Committee of the Music Library Association in conjunction with the Music OCLC Users Group (MOUG) is pleased to offer educational workshops on the basics of music librarianship. Three workshops have been developed in the Educational Outreach Program: Sound recordings cataloging, music reference, and music collection development/acquisitions.
Music Librarianship Workshops are offered at the national conferences of the Music Library Association and other organizations, at state and regional library association meetings, as well as through library schools and library consortia. Chapters of the Music Library Association also provide workshop opportunities in their respective regions. Experienced music librarians, who have been trained as instructors, lead each workshop. Workshops can be adapted to any length and catered to the needs of your organization or group.
The focus of these workshops is on gaining practical skills in a specific area with opportunities to network with peers. Workshops are targeted to new music librarians who would like additional training, library students contemplating a specialization in music librarianship, general librarians who would like to learn more about music librarianship, library staff members who would benefit from knowing more about music librarianship, and seasoned music librarians who would like a refresher. Check the Workshop Calendar section for a listing of upcoming and previous workshops.
