Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this study is to secure statistical data about music libraries and music departments of general libraries. Using the statistics as a basis, comparisons will be made on the number of each type of library (whether college library department, public library department, or independent music library), holdings in each, annual budgets for purchasing and maintaining collections, training of personnel, and remuneration of staff. The comparisons will not be made on administrative policies, cooperation with other music agencies, basis of materials selection, or use made of collections. While this information would be of value, it could not be developed accurately through an objective set of questions but rather from extended interviews with music librarians or by in-service experience in each library. Since this is not feasible, only those aspects will be considered which have to do with acquisition and maintenance of holdings, and the training and remuneration of staff. Geographical distribution of music libraries will be shown by the use of a map followed by a discussion of some reasons why they are located as they are"--Introduction.
