Rocki Strader, Associate Professor in The Ohio State University Libraries Collection Description and Access Department, has been awarded the Music Library Association’s (MLA) Richard S. Hill Award for best article on music librarianship or of a music-bibliographic nature, for her article, “Cataloging Music Sound Recordings in the United States: An Evolution of Practice and Standards,” Notes v. 72 no. 2 (Dec. 2015): 276-327.

As the MLA Publication Awards Committee wrote: “Strader provides historical context and analysis, chronicling bibliographic description of and access to sound recordings from card catalogs to the digital age. She thoroughly addresses the issues surrounding the persistent question of the “unit of catalog” for sound recordings, charting the change in practice over time. Strader’s article is useful to catalogers, researchers, and library educators and contributes to the body of research documenting library history and the development of cataloging standards.”

The project that resulted in this article and award was supported in part by an ALAO Research Grant in 2014.
