The series publishes books on aspects of music librarianship and the profession not covered in its Basic Manual series. The format allows authors to explore subjects in depth, with each book intended as a self-contained reference. Topics addressing trends in music research, the history of music librarianship, new media technology, metadata and cataloging issues, collection development, preservation, and facilities management are of particular interest. Both completed manuscripts and preliminary ideas on these and other topics are welcome. Please feel free to contact the series editor to discuss proposals in detail.
