Sheri Stormes on behalf of the Resource Sharing and Collection Development Committeesstormes@butler.eduGarnering Interest in Collecting the Works of Under-Represented ComposersPanel discussion with 3-4 participants, each speaking about an under-represesnted composer (or small group of composers from the same country, e.g., China, Brazil, India, etc.) and suggesting 3-5 scores/recordings that librarians may want to purchase to raise profile of these composers; depending on responses received, this could be more focused (e.g., on works of female composers, African-American composers, etc.)

Emily Vickersevickers@ewu.eduVocational awe in music librarianshipI’m interested in: 1) Exploring vocational awe, as defined by Fobazi Ettarh [ http://www.inthelibrarywiththeleadpipe.org/2018/vocational-awe/ ], as it manifests in music in addition to librarianship; 2) Considering how the intersection of these two fields could result in particular susceptibility for music library workers to VA; 3) Investigating how VA specifically manifests in music librarianship, where it fits into current issues/how to address it (e.g., advocacy strategies for music libraries/library workers/patrons, efforts towards an inclusive professional culture, hiring/retention, facilitating healthy work environments, burnout, self-care & health, changing roles/expectations of libraries/library service, etc.).

Currently envisioning a panel that can critically engage with this topic from a range of perspectives within the profession, engaging the audience in activities/discussion prompting self-reflection and collaborative work to recognize and address negative impact of VA at individual/systemic levels.
