NASM Sheet Music Project Internship

This project involves the cataloging of sheet music in the Bella C. Landauer Collection of Aeronautical Sheet Music at the National Air and Space Museum Library. Intern will catalog sheet music by upgrading existing brief records in an OCLC Connexion Client save file. Cataloging is done in MARC, according to AACR2 or RDA, LCSH, and the LC/NACO Name Authority File along with guidelines for sheet music cataloging. One of the special objectives of this project is to provide access to the graphic content of the publications, usually an illustrated title page (sometimes referred to as a sheet music cover). Intern will gain specialized experience in sheet music cataloging and cataloging of graphic material. Intern will develop an understanding of the role of metadata in a digitization project.
