Pan-American Connections: Building Bridges between Music Librarianship and Distinctive Collections

Abstract    español | português
At the University of Miami (UM), subject liaisons such as music librarians, regularly engage with their counterparts in the distinctive collections. These collaborations increase exposure to hidden collections, aid in collection building, are increasingly important to undergraduate and graduate education and faculty teaching, learning, and research. In addition, the collaborations between the librarians at the Weeks Music Library and those at the Cuban Heritage Collection and Special Collections at UM, have resulted in career-enhancing opportunities for graduate students in the Frost School of Music as well as opportunities that benefit the distinctive collections. Through this presentation, we present case studies of research by students and faculty that highlight the necessity and impact of these collaborations, how they might be replicated, and the lessons we have learned.
