Abstract

This study investigates skills and aptitudes required and preferred by institutions for entry-level professional employment in music librarianship. All announcements from the Music Library Association’s Job Placement Service’s Job List 2008–2011 were examined, and entry-level professional positions were extracted. Each was then categorized by primary responsibilities, and required and preferred qualifications were coded. Data indicate that while some required skills are common among the field’s specialties, each job type demands unique training and abilities.
