University Libraries WorkshopThis workshop will assist students in learning to research and write program notes for recitals and other performances. Good program notes must be articulate, authoritative, and concise. They are how the musician communicates about their chosen repertoire, and they establish a listening context which is both musical and historical. Far different from a research paper, they pose distinct challenges to the performing musician. Join us as we discuss these challenges and develop strategies to overcome them.

We’ll also highlight online collections where you can find high quality photography and images that are free to use.

Reel Inclusion Waging ChangeWAGING CHANGE shines a light on an American struggle hidden in plain sight: the women-led movement to end the federal tipped minimum wage for restaurant workers. Most people serving food in U.S. restaurants are paid a federal sub-minimum wage of only $2.13 an hour and are forced to depend on tips to feed themselves and their families. Women, who hold two-thirds of all tip-based jobs, are especially affected. WAGING CHANGE includes a special section on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and reveals the key role consumers must play in ending this two-tiered wage system.
