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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
