    Bonnie E. Fleming wrote on the Interest Groups: Women in Music wall: Hi Everyone! Happy April! I just got a message from Ray Hegemeier about a possible collaboration for a presentation at the conference in Portland next year. I'm going to post the message here and ask....do any of you have collections with strong women in music holdings that would like to put together a 20-30 minute talk about your holdings to pair with Ray's talk? read the email below and see if any of us have something that would be a good match to pair with this to propose to the program committee. I need some answers by the 16th so that I can contact Ray and we can have time to send the proposal in to the program committee by early May. If you have an idea, please send a short proposal (300 words or so) describing what you want to do to lilaclover@sbcglobal.com. If I have multiple proposals I will post them here and we can all vote on the best one to match with Ray's existing suggestion so the decision is not just my opinion, but the opinion of as much of the group as wishes to express an opinion on the issue. Here is Ray's email: Hi Bonnie, I am putting together a presentation proposal for Portland 2018 on the Jenny Lind materials held at Stanford Libraries. Initially I intended to submit it as a member-proposed session, and then I thought it would be nice to look for a IG sponsor, ideally so that someone else could come up with a companion presentation on a collection of interest and we could then round out an hour on the schedule. I am planning on a 25-30 minute session. The Lind collection has some unique materials including letters, a scrapbook (of sorts) belonging to her mother, and a handwritten copy of her contract with PT Barnum. My goal is to promote these materials in advance of Lind's bicentennial in 2020. Do you think someone in the Women in Music Interest Group might want to join in? If not I am happy to go it alone. Just wanted to ask! Please let me know in the next few weeks--the deadline is in early May. Cheers, and thanks in advance, Ray Ray Heigemeir Public Services Librarian Stanford Music Library Chair, Web Committee, Music Library Association
