Join us this Saturday, March 16, from 10-11:30am! The Music Division, together with the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division, will offer a research orientation on how to find film music resources at the Library of Congress. These resources are located in the Performing Arts Reading Room, Moving Image Research Center, and Recorded Sound Research Center, throughout the Library of Congress, and online.
You can sign up for this free event on Eventbrite. The orientation will take place in Room LJ-139B of the Jefferson Building. The room is just around the corner from Reader Registration in the Jefferson Building. All we ask is that you try to arrive 15 minutes prior to the orientation, as seating is available on a first-come basis.
This session will help you discover unique materials about the creative processes and products of filmmakers, including composers, orchestrators, directors, cinematographers, and writers. Learn how to find materials for both silent and sound film—be it full scores, arrangements, sheet music, lead sheets, film prints, or other production ephemera. This session will benefit students, first-time Library visitors, and seasoned researchers with interests in film music.
The session includes time for Q&A about research strategies or steps on specific research projects.
Hope to see you there!
this sounds like I missed an awesome presentation. Is there a recording I could review?
Unfortunately, there is not a recording. Until another presentation is offered, we do have a film music research guide online that covers much of the same content.
