Tamar Barzel

Head of Music Library and Archive of Recorded Sound, Music Library
As the head of the Music Library and Archive of Recorded Sound I manage a wonderful team, oversee our collections (print, audiovisual, digital, and archival), and provide support for research into music of all times and places. I have a research background in ethnomusicology with a focus on Jewish music and experimental music in New York City and Mexico City. Before arriving at Stanford Libraries in 2021 I taught at Wellesley College, Harvard, and NYU.
