this statement be included in the record of the hearings held May 14, 1913 by Representative Robert W. Kastenmeier.

The Music Library Association, on behalf of the public which its members werte, wishes to take exception to the exclusion of music from the library copy privileges specified in section 108 of H.R. 2223. We feel that patrons of 1 libraries should be granted the same rights of access to information we are extended to library users in other fields. We maintain that failure to recorde this fqual right of access is discriminatory and contrary to the public intend

Although music may occupy a special position in the concert hall or on the air, music in the library is not substantially different from any other subject coute tion in the library. Music is widely studied in schools and universities but for as a performing art but as a humanistic discipline equivalent to English literatur or history, and in usic libraries are constituted to serve these studies.

Most music libraries are located in large univerxities, liberal arts college, conservatories and large public libraries with extensive research coleti " Music libraries are the repository for one thousand years of Western culture ibe perio for which we have notated readable records of our musical heritage. Scholars and students come to music libraries to examine and study theep 16 Such study ju a demanding discipline and serious students need to sturiy, analyz. and compare portions of complex musical scores in the same was that alta students of medieval history, French, or biology nord a c'es to data in the spective fields, Just as th> plare of Shakeare represent more than a 10 for actors to a specialist in English literature, so the symphonies of Beetlevien are of intellectual and aesthetic concern to students and scholar of 1111ic

Perhaps the committee is unaware that the exclusion of music in clause (2) of section 105 Would restrict the works of Bach, Beethoven and Mozart as well 14 those of living composers. Edited versions of music from any century mar be registered for Class E (musical composition) copyright. It is, in fact, alaest 11

wwlhje to find a score of any kind published in this century which do Dont bear a apis right notice, and this notice makes no distinction between editorial and authorship copyright. Thus the exclusion of music works in clanse h) will a 18-4 study not only of the music of Bela Bartok who died in 1915 but of works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (d. 1791 ) and Guillaume de Machaut id. 13711.

Special Libraries Association was organized in 1909 to derelop liars and information resources for special segments of our communities whlb adequately served by public libraries or by libraries in educational instituti At first the emphasis was on special subject corerage in each special titrary as it related to the interests and business of its parent organization, for at le surce of statistical data for both corporations and the agencies of the na'i government and state governments; business data for banks and investment firms; chemical information for the then dereloping chemical induxiry : mph neering information for the emerging complexes of engineering and consiste e companies, etc.

During the past 60 years and with particular growing needs for rapid inl. s tion delivery since World War II.-specialized libraries and information centen have been established in all segments of our nation's affairs. They exist in for profit enterprises and pot-for-profit organizations, as well as in government agescies. Some are open to public use, and others have restricted access (1 ***120 of security classified materials) or are part of a for-profit organization idey* " ' proprietary information). During this period of accelerated growth, the original emphasis on special subjects has been replaced more and more by the pit of speciglized information serriets for a specialiud clientele. An example of an a ***ialized information service for a specialized clientele is the luginative Refers ence Service of the Library of Congrese. Although the Library of Congre** * whole is often called a "national library," the entire Library of CongTp twell 18 twistians, an outstanding example of a definition of service to a $*tialized cien tele: The ('ongrpes of the United States of America.
