The Music Library Rocks

March 9, 2011

New Orleans Music

In less than two weeks, I’ll be in New Orleans for the conference of the United Association of Labor Educators. I’m presenting a paper I wrote in my labor history seminar last semester, also known as the toughest class I’ve taken at Cornell, along with ten or so other student scholarship winners. I can’t wait. To set my excitement to music, I walked over to the Sidney Cox Library in Lincoln Hall, the music building on the Arts Quad, and checked out as much music from the region as I could find. I spent the next hour copying CDs and reading liner notes (though I had told myself I’d be able to do work while putting the music in my computer… alas.) For someone who loves both music and libraries, I was kind of shocked that this was my first time checking out CDs in four years. I fully intend to spend a whole Saturday in the library expanding my collection. But for now, Professor Longhair and James Booker have earned a rightful place in my iTunes, and I’ll have so much to listen to on the plane!
