Many music librarians are tasked with reaching out to their primary user groups, but don’t know how to start this process, or need new ideas to spur them forward. Outreach for Music Librarians is a manual designed to provide immediate, practical help in the planning, implementation, and assessment of outreach projects. This manual is divided into three sections: (1) foundational principles to be kept in mind no matter the project; (2) an introduction to six different outreach projects with all the information needed to implement; and (3) case studies of outreach projects at four vastly different libraries.
 
While this manual is aimed at newer practitioners, Outreach for Music Librarians provides such a wide breadth of information that even experienced music librarians should find new inspiration and should include it in their own collections.
