Music Librarian Resume

A librarian has the defined duty of cataloging materials, books or musical materials (records, tapes, cd, dvd, printed music, books on music-oriented subjects). In the second case we call him a music librarian.

If you are interested in music and you are thinking of getting a job as a music librarian, then you may know that a music librarian performs similar activities with a traditional librarian but he has knowledge and he deals with musical materials. Mostly, a music librarian has to discover what the clients are interested in, what kind of music they search; to create catalogs, indexes, brochures, magazines, exhibits, Web sites, and bibliographies; to establish the library's information system, to classify and file musical recordings, sheet music and original arrangements.


As a music librarian, one can work in a library of course, but also in sheet music stores, record stores, a university, conservatory, at a television or radio station, for an orchestra where they have one extra responsibility: to help choosing music for various programs. In any case, you will have to dedicate your time in being informed about all kinds of music and updating your knowledge with new information regarding the mew musical materials that appear every day.

No matter where the job is, the most important thing is to know a lot about music and musicians and to want to spend your time cataloging all of the musical materials. If this is what you are searching for, then based on the given description, present yourself as a person who can accomplish all those duties. Write about your knowledge and about all of your skills.
