Many music librarians must take on subject areas outside of our academic and professional training. What is the best way to quickly learn a new discipline and stay one step ahead of students and patrons? This session will provide guidance for music librarians who might be new to, or curious about, art and film. At the end of this session, attendees will have new resources and strategies for handling reference questions in these disciplines. They will also glean valuable tips for maintaining current subject knowledge.
