The Music Library is fortunate to host Zhang Jihong, Associate Professor and Reference Librarian at the Shanghai Conservatory, as a visiting scholar for the 2014 calendar year. Jihong, who is here with her husband and young son, will focus her study on library management practices, collection development and organization, user services and instruction, digital resource development, care and handling of rare materials, and uses of technology in the music library setting. The Shanghai Conservatory, the oldest in China, is undergoing a major upgrade of their facilities, including the library.
