Michael Ochs, "What Music Scholars Should Know about Publishers," Notes 59, no. 2 (December 2002): 288-300.

To a great extent, music scholars rely on publishers of music books, and at the same time, publishers need scholars. Yet how a member of one group views a member of the other runs the gamut from close collaborator to acrimonious adversary.


Linda Dempf, "The Woman’s Symphony Orchestra of Chicago," Notes 62, no. 4 (June 2006): 857-903.

During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, increasing numbers of women began to study orchestral instruments and to move from the home sphere of private music making to performing in public. Yet despite their increasing numbers, professional performance was still largely done by men.


Andrea Imre and Elizabeth J. Cox, "Are We on the Right Track? Issues with LP Record Collections in U.S. Academic Libraries," Notes 65, no. 3 (March 2009): 475-486.

How can libraries ensure that our audio heritage residing on long-playing records (LPs) will still be available in the future?. . . . Why is the repertoire on LPs important for libraries?
