Teen Music Interest Group returns

Posted By April Pavis On October 12, 2010 @ 8:57 am In Music,Teen Services | No Comments

Self-proclaimed music buff and Teen Librarian April Pavis has taken over as convener for YALSA’s Teen Music Interest Group (henceforth known as T-MIG).   Music-related issues will be covered in ALA Connect and in listserv discussions ya-music@ala.org.

A few of the issues:

– Illegal downloading continues to be a big issue for the recording industry and library computers are likely used in those illegal efforts.  T-MIG members and guests will discuss illegal music downloading in libraries, and the repercussions and ethics of allowing it to go on.

– Music programming for teens: what works, what doesn’t, ideas, suggestions, discussions.

– Teen use of music in the news.

– Emerging technologies for use in the libraries, or for our patrons.

I look forward to the discussions and positive influence this group will have on teens and librarians-serving-teens across the country.  Please do not hesitate to post on the listerv, member or not.  All contributions are welcome.
