MLA Preview 2010

March 22, 2010 at 12:37 pm

Well, March Madness seems like it also might stretch into conferences as well: Amusicology provided coverage of the Society for American Music conference this past weekend and although there is a lot going on, I’m joining Gabe in San Diego as he exhibits at the Music Library Association annual meeting (visit him at the Schubertiade Music booth!)

Although MLA and SAM do joint conferences every few years, we here at amusicology have never tried to cover an MLA conference. But life is about trying new things, so I’m happy to report that we’ll be checking out a few sessions these next few days.

One thing that strikes me in flipping through the MLA program is that it seems that the panel format is much more prevalent here than it is at SAM (or, for that matter, AMS. But the digital humanities and web technologies are very much on my mind these days, so I’ll be bringing you coverage of a few sessions:

“Weaving the Web: Best Practices for Online Content,” moderated by James LeFager (Monday Afternoon)

“Virtual Access Reexamined: Assessing How Libraries Support the Arts in Second Life” (a panel of American University people: Nobue Matsuoka-Motley, Rachel Borchardt, and Michael Matos; Tuesday Afternoon)

“Hot Topics in Music Librarianship” Moderator: Tom Caw (Wednesday Afternoon).

As always, you can follow us on twitter while we are covering conferences. You can either look for the #amusicology hashtag, or the #mla2010 for coverage from everyone at the conference.
