Libraries in Music Teaching Institutions

The aim of the Libraries in Music Teaching Institutions Section is to focus on topics of special interest to members working in, for example, conservatories, departments of musicology, universities, etc.

The section usually has two sessions during the annual conference. One of them is often a joint session with another Institutional Section. For example the first session in Sydney was held together with the Public Libraries Section and dealt with the interaction between these two types of libraries.

The second session in Sydney had “Ethnomusicology in Conservatories” as the theme. Other issues recently presented were “Artistic Research”, “Rare Collections in Conservatories” and Bibliography in Conservatories”.

Find below, under "Activities," the result of the international questionnaire, “Networking and access to music collections”, with links to web sites and online catalogues of several music teaching institutions around the world. This questionnaire was carried out by Jane Gottlieb, Federica Riva, and Yasko Todo. The results were published in 1998 and were presented at  the IAML conference in San Sebastian (see  Fontes 46/1-2, p. 147-148).
