Books (& scores) are NOT scary

We just threw that picture in to get your attention, we promise that books are not scary.

We were saddened to learn from one of our Music Faculty that some of her students reported in class today that they are afraid of books. In the hopes of helping them overcome their fear we present the following evidence from our collection.


She's adorable, not scary.

And lastly, we offer this FRIENDLY score.

Overcome your fear, read a book. :-)

Alternate (e-waste) Recycling site in Music Library!

Maybe you don't know what to do with that battery that has run out...or that cell phone that doesn't work anymore?  Well, we have an e-waste recycling bin in the Music Library (and there is one in the basement of the main libary too). 

E-waste represents 2% of America’s trash in landfills, but it equals 70% of overall toxic waste. “Recycling E-waste makes sense for the planet, our finances and our health.” he said. Those with questions may call the OWRR (Office of Waste Reduction and Recyling) at 4-5192.

Here is info from a Campus Weekly article from August 9, 2011:

Electronics, or “e-waste,” may not be tossed into the trash. Electronics are defined as batteries, computer parts, cell phones and computer media (such as CDs, DVDs and tapes).

Batteries (all types)

Ink Toner Cartridges

CDs/Floppy Discs


Cell Phones

Spread the word and keep these toxicities out of the landfill!  THANKS!

More to come on the greening of the Music Library (Green Office Program next!).  Stay tuned!

Music Library circulates media more widely

UNCG Music Library is circulating media to students for a week.  After years of operating as a "teaching collection" we decided that because of more realiable online options (Naxos, Music Online, etc.) we could finally circulate physical media (CDs, DVDs, LPs - yes, we have vinyl - and videos) to our students.  Everything but recital recordings, that is, because they are more specialer.  More info on our website:

And check out the cool consciousness raising "sign" that Liane Elias created - out of, you got it, CD cases! (photo credit:  MK Amos):

Come on in and check them out!

Congratulations to Two of our Students: Sonia and Jacey!!

We are tickled pink about Sonia and Jacey's awards!!  WOO HOO!!  Congrats to you both!!  Here's the anouncement from SEMLA-L!

I’m most pleased to announce two winners of the Pauline Shaw Bayne Travel Grant for 2011: Sonia Archer-Capuzzo and Jacey Kepich.

Sonia Archer-Capuzzo received her MLIS this year from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She currently works as a volunteer in the UNC-G Music Library, following up her years there as a student assistant. Sonia holds a DMA from UNC-G and an MM from Texas Tech University. Her varied work experience includes free-lance clarinet performance, concert-series management, and professor/lecturer positions. She has published articles on performance-related injuries and has presented papers for ICA ClarinetFest and the Society for Ethnomusicology’s Southeast/Caribbean Chapter, among other groups. At our Saturday morning session in Chapel Hill, Sonia will speak on “Fieldwork and the Music Librarian.”

Jacey Kepich expects to receive her MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in May. She holds an MM from UNC-G and has taught clarinet there as part of her Graduate Assistant duties. Previously she served as Acquisitions Assistant at the Sibley Library of the Eastman School of Music and held internships with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Interlochen Summer Arts Camp, and United States Marine Band.

Thanks to Jaro Szurek and Tim Gmeiner for serving on this year’s travel grant committee. (And no, the committee did not make clarinetist-from-Greensboro a secret criterion for selection.)
Welcome to SEMLA, Jacey and Sonia! We’re looking forward to having you with us in Chapel Hill.
