1 Reference Wrap-up: Agonizing Art and Freaky Film Erin Conor, Performing Arts Librarian, Reed College Lisa Hooper, Head Music & Media Librarian, Tulane University Kathleen DeLaurenti, Arts Librarian, College of William & Mary Music Library Assoc. Annual Conference, February 2015

2 Taking on a new subject area: what to do?? I have subject responsibilities... outside of music. in the performing arts. in the fine arts or film. in at least one other humanities disciplines, like English literature. in foreign language(s). in a discipline I haven’t even mentioned yet- science, math, etc.

3 Working with your new department Develop relationships with your faculty. What are the creative practitioners in the department doing- artists, filmmakers, etc.? Make sure the library has materials to support these activities. Learn the research and teaching interests. What drives inquiry in this discipline? Purchase faculty publications.

4 Understanding the collection Become familiar with major journals, whether through Ulrich's, DOAJ, NEWJOUR listserv, etc. Set up journal alerts for new articles through Cambridge UP, Taylor & Francis, etc. If you have an intern or student assistant, have him or her assess the collection. Review collection development policies from other libraries.

5 Utilizing your professional networks Sign up for relevant listservs. See specialized professional organizations (ARLIS, etc.) for info! Do they have helpful publications? Local chapter meetings also a good source for connections and information. Investigate non-library organizations: the equivalent of AMS or SMT. Browse libguides from top institutions for the discipline. Ask for help and ideas! Ask on MLA-L and within your own library.

6 Be excited! Not everybody gets to take on new subject areas. You'll learn a lot and can apply your knowledge to music.
