"Creativity and collaboration in providing access to music collections & reference services" University of Western Australia

Our forthcoming annual conference is an opportunity for professionals and stakeholders across public, private, education and government sectors to share best practice and new ideas. Creativity is pivotal to all aspects of working with music collections and services, from curating archival collections, to developing events programmes, or establishing new projects to meet the needs of clients whether they are members of the public, orchestras, community groups or students, and even creative thinking, budgeting or planning. Creativity and collaboration often come hand in hand.
