Abstract

With an innovative use of the Music Conspectus, the Hong Kong Baptist University Library conducted a score collection assessment to identify not only the strengths and weaknesses of the collection, but also problems with the choice of score publishers and formats arisen in the acquisitions process. Because of its flexible application, this modified Music Conspectus can be easily adopted by libraries of all sizes and libraries that use any classification system. This article provides detailed description of the techniques used and highlights findings, benefits received and actions done following the project.
