ABOUT THE EDITORS AND CONTRIBUTORS
INDEX

Music Library Association (MLA)

Founded in 1931, Music Library Association (MLA) is the professional organization in the United States devoted to music librarianship and all aspects of music materials in libraries. MLA provides a professional forum for librarians, archivists, and others who support and preserve the world's musical heritage.

"As the most authoritative music collection resource available, these three volumes are revised on a regular basis and are geared towards librarians without a music background who often work in public and small academic libraries. Given that it is a compilation by members of the Music Library Association, many of whom are the world experts in their subject area, these volumes are a great investment for any libraries wanting to build up their music score and sound recording collections."
