The Music Library Association's Emerging Technologies and Services
Committee invites your comments on the second draft of our "Music

detail the specialized needs of music materials for discovery interfaces
of all kinds. An initial draft of this document was shared via MLA-L (a
distribution list for music librarians and those interested in music
librarianship) in fall 2011. We have now completed a second draft,
which we are publicizing more broadly.
We invite your comments, thoughts, and suggestions by March 16, 2012.
The document is available at
