Dear Colleagues,

 

Here is a posting for two new music cataloging positions at the Syracuse
University Library:

 

 

                                                                Syracuse
University Library

                             Temporary Music Sound Recording
Cataloger/Librarian 

                                

Summary:

 

The Diane & Arthur B. Belfer Audio Laboratory and Archive is, at
present, a mostly hidden scholarly resource.  Since it was established
in 1963, Belfer has acquired a collection of nearly 337,000 recordings
that represent America's cultural history in recorded sound, including
200,000 78-rpm recordings, 21,000 cylinders, 60,000 33 1/3 rpm
recordings, 30,000 45 rpm recordings, numerous unpublished recordings,
and a significant number of historical playback devices and recording
artifacts.  

 

The Belfer's collections have never been widely known to scholars, in
large part because of inadequate cataloging.  To remedy that situation
for a portion of Belfer's collection, the Syracuse University Library
seeks to join Yale University, the New York Public Library for the
Performing Arts, and Stanford University in their Mellon-funded project
to catalog 78-rpm recordings.  As one of the four largest sound
recordings repositories in the U.S., aside from the Library of Congress,
we will also discover which of our 78-rpm collections are unique and
should receive priority in preservation.

 

Cataloging these single 78s will begin to unlock the scholarly resources
in the Belfer collections. Though the Syracuse University Library has
not formally participated in the current collaborative grant project as
yet, we have applied for a Mellon grant so that we may contribute to
this important work by cataloging the recordings on the Decca label, of
which SU has at least 9,000 items.  Historically, Decca is significant
in that it produced the third-largest U.S. commercial output (after
Victor and Columbia).

 

Syracuse University Libraries invite applications for Music Sound
Recordings Cataloger. This is an 18-month position for an experienced
music cataloger running from April 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009. As a
part of the Syracuse University (SU) Library, the Belfer Audio
Laboratory and Archive seeks two librarians to catalog a portion of its
78 rpm music sound recording collection.  Final hiring is contingent
upon grant approval.

 

Responsibilities: 

 

*	Under the general direction of the Assistant Head of Cataloging
and Metadata Services, performs original and copy cataloging, as needed,
in OCLC, for the Belfer Audio Laboratory and Archive collection of Decca

subjects, and verifies their accuracy. 
*	Consults lists of selected pre-determined print resources, to
aid in providing enhanced documentation for catalog records. 
*	Consults with Syracuse University librarians and with catalogers
at other institutions to obtain more information regarding the special
processing aspects of the 78rpm collection. 
*	Searches OCLC for copy cataloging that may need enhancement.
*	During the final phases of the project, works in cooperation
with project staff at Stanford, Yale, and the New York Public Library to
create a database of uncataloged archived recordings in compliance with
protocols being developed by Stanford. 
*	Conducts batch-matching to capture cataloging data from OCLC
records created by the other participating institutions.
*	Supervise staff.
*	Performs related duties as required.

 

Qualifications:

Studies.
*	Undergraduate or graduate degree in music or the performing arts
or an

               equivalent combination of education and experience in
either field.

*	Successfully demonstrated professional experience cataloging
sound

               recordings or other music materials into a bibliographic
utility using

*	AACR2, MARC format, and LC subject headings. 
*	Successfully demonstrated experience cataloging into the OCLC
national database. 
*	Strong interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills,
including successfully demonstrated ability to deal tactfully and
effectively with staff in a team setting. 
*	Demonstrated knowledge of sound recording history, including
early record labels, and technology preferred.  
*	Knowledge of conservation procedures and practices for sound
recordings.
