I'm no longer a member of MLA--my professional goals diverted and I had to make a choice of paying for audio archives memberships or music library memberships. Anyway, I still watch that world, and the upcoming meeting of ATMLA (Atlantic Chapter of MLA) is having its annual meeting in DC, specifically at American University. They are holding super cheap pre-conference workshops on reference, sound recording cataloging, and acquisition:
Music Librarianship: Just the Basics
Friday, October 15, 2010
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Atlantic Chapter of the Music Library Association (ATMLA) and American University invite you to join us for workshops on music reference, sound recording cataloging and music collection development.
The workshops are a pre-conference to ATMLA’s chapter meeting and part of the Music Library Association's Educational Outreach Program. The program provides workshops on the basics of music librarianship to individuals working in or considering a career in libraries.
The workshops will be offered concurrently, and led by practicing music librarians. Pre-conference participants are invited to attend a luncheon and the ATMLA chapter meeting immediately following the pre-conference. The cost is included in the $20 registration fee
($15 early registration available until October 6).
