The annual conference of the Music Library Association (USA) was held 2-5 March 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Anna Kijas, Digital Scholarship Librarian at Boston College, reflects on her experience.
Each year the MLA conference brings together people with a shared interest in music librarianship and music resources. While this interest may be directly linked to our professional roles and careers, we also represent a community of people who may have started out as musicians, archivists and librarians working with music-specific materials, but now represent roles in emerging or evolving areas, such as metadata, discovery services, digital preservation, or digital humanities. It is this sense of community that brings me (and others I know) to the MLA conference every year.

As an “R” project representative and IAML member it is always a pleasure and honor to attend the annual MLA conference and to interact with so many devoted music librarians. This year’s conference was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, a city at the crossroads of the East Coast and Midwest and of the North and the South.
