Research Libraries

Terms of reference

The Research Libraries Section addresses topics related to the diverse kinds of research undertaken in music libraries by librarians, academics, and independent researchers. It promotes the research of librarians into the history and holdings of their own institutions, serves as a forum of discussion about how libraries can best facilitate the research of their users, and seeks to enquire into new ways in which music libraries can cooperate with universities and other research institutions in the exploration of their collections.

Congresses

The Section usually sponsors two paper sessions at the annual conference. Occasionally a third session is jointly organised with another section or committee. Each session represents a particular theme of interest to research libraries, e.g. musicological or music library research, digitisation projects dealing with research materials. Sessions might also reflect a regional theme related to the host country. Reports on the sessions held at each conference are published in Fontes Artis Musicae.
