Organized by the Student Chapter of ARSC at UCLA.
The Student Chapter of the Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) at UCLA welcomes current graduate students, faculty, and staff to benefit from the perspectives of four professionals from the field of music librarianship, audio archiving, and sound preservation for a panel discussion about being female in a traditionally male-dominated profession. Each woman will share the path to her current position, the challenges they have faced, and details from situations they have experienced during preservation projects, providing services to library users, or digitizing culturally relevant musical recordings. The Student Chapter of ARSC is hosting this panel discussion for students, faculty, and staff of every gender identity hear each woman’s story, to learn how to develop strategies for challenges they may face as they enter their respective
professional fields, and to network with this array of practicing librarian-archivists and preservation engineers.
