The Stanford Libraries’ Music Library and Archive of Recorded Sound are at the forefront in providing innovative support for scholarship, teaching, and learning in the various subdisciplines in music and musicology as practiced at Stanford. The music and recording collections in the Music Library and Archive of Recorded Sound comprise one of the most significant research collections anywhere.
The Head Librarian of the Music Library and Archive of Recorded Sound provides a full range of high-quality library services for the faculty and students of the Department of Music and to other interested faculty, students, and staff of the University. The Head Librarian is also a member of the management team responsible for humanities and area studies collections in the Stanford University Libraries. In addition to advanced subject expertise in music and sound recordings, the Head Librarian must have proven managerial ability and be capable of contributing to the programs and projects of the Libraries in general as well as to the University.
