LIS 589 Music Librarianship II (3)

With the objective of achieving the level of cataloging expertise that would be expected in an entry-level music cataloging position, students will become familiar with the bibliographic control of music through class sessions and hands-on cataloging of various music and music-related formats, with an emphasis on scores and sound recordings. Practice will be “real world” experience with cataloging, metadata, authority work, and bibliographic control, including performing original cataloging and complex copy cataloging. Students will receive ongoing review as the course progresses.

NOTE: This course is intended for students in the dual master's program in music librarianship. This includes the MS and master's in music history. Write to LIS for a special brochure describing the dual master's program in music librarianship.
