Information Literacy Month!

President Barack Obama just announced that this month is "National Information Literacy Awareness Month."

New Grove

What is information literacy?
"Information Literacy is defined as the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand." -From the National Forum on Information Literacy

The Music Librarians are information literacy specialists. We can help you find materials for all types of music research!

Did you know?
*The Music Library has three full-time librarians, one full-time staff, and usually around 13 student employees.
*We are trained to look for books, sound recordings, scores, and other types of materials in libraries all around the world!
*You can contact us to schedule a research assistance session with a librarian for yourself or a small group?
*You can even ask your professor to schedule a session for the entire class!
*Not sure where things are in the library? Request a library tour! We can adjust the tour to fit any major, instrument, or research area.
*Want to request an item for the Music Library to purchase? Got a suggestion you'd like to make about the library? Our suggestion box is a straight line of contact with our head librarian.

We're always interested in hearing your suggestions- we want you to use and enjoy the Music Library. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way!
