Description: From Library Journal
Think spiral curriculum. Beginning with the general, this guide discusses collection development policies within a music context (recordings, scores, editions, etc.). Next a hodgepodge of existing music collection development policy examples (St. Olaf College, Hartt School, and others) is worked into a sample policy. And finally, the specific a complete policy from the Middlebury College Music Library, VT, written by Jerry McBride. Maple (music librarian, Pennsylvania State Univ.) and Morrow (director of libraries, New England Conservatory of Music and professor at Simmons Coll., Boston) hope the Guide "will serve as a practical aid to music selectors writing or revising collection policies." And indeed, it will. Intended as a supplement to the American Library Associations's Guide for Written Collection Policy Statements, the Guide's focus upon music collection development policies is unique. Its concise and thorough treatment of this often neglected document will be a welcome addition to the neophyte as well as the veteran. Recommended for large public, academic, and music libraries.
