Committees: Education
Group Pages


To devise and coordinate activities related to 1) continuing education for music librarianship, and 2) outreach education to those whose responsibilities include music, and to other audiences external to MLA, such as students and faculty in professional librarianship degree programs, and MLA’s chapters. Activities can include, but are not limited to, coordinating the development and maintenance of websites that share MLA’s expertise on various aspects of music librarianship; developing and sponsoring workshops; and developing and sponsoring conference and pre-conference sessions. The committee will maintain a rotation of session topics that focus on both music and non-music specific librarianship topics (preservation, effective leadership, etc.) and sponsor programs on such topics every few years.
