With the Richard S. Hill Award the Music Library Association honors the best article on music librarianship or article of a music-bibliographic nature. In this issue of Notes now, we highlight three articles published in Notes that have won this distinction.
Richard Hill (1901-1961) transformed our journal from mimeographed pages to a professionally-printed journal during his long-standing tenure as editor (1943-1960). In addition to his work with Notes and his position at the Library of Congress (from 1939 until his passing), Hill became the first president of IAML (1951-1955) and was one of the founders of RISM.

Ever since libraries first began collecting materials other than books (so-called "other formats" or "nonbook materials"), librarians have grappled with the descriptive issues these materials have raised.
Some librarians, in the course of their daily endeavors, quietly accomplish remarkable things. Among California's early leaders in music librarianship, six stand out in particular: Jessica Fredricks, Gladys Caldwell, George Schneider, Joan Meggett, Edward Colby, and Vincent Duckles.
The Music Library Association is the
professional association for music
libraries and librarianship in the United
States. Founded in 1931, it has an
international membership of librarians,
musicians, scholars, educators, and
members of the book and music trades.
Complementing the Association’s national
and international activities are eleven
regional chapters that carry out its
programs on the local level.
