Music librarians featured in the NYT

More on the Juilliard gift in the New York Times. (See previous post). Lots of familiar names and a great media showing for some of this country's top music librarians, including:

- Jane Gottlieb, Juilliard Conservatory ("a diminutive Upper West Sider with a serious demeanor.")
- Don Krummel, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign ("Juilliard got in there ahead of time," he added. "Whoopee! Good for Jane.")
- J. Rigbie Turner, Morgan Library
- Jon Newsom, Library of Congress, Music Division (retired)

Juilliard does plan to hire a curator for the collection in 2009, after items have been processed and a special room has been built. Both scholars and librarians will be watching.
