This poster will advocate a versatile approach to preparing student assistants from all backgrounds to work in music libraries. Developing and leveraging soft skills alongside students’ primary subject learning leads to educationally purposeful student employment that better prepares them for success after they graduate. Combine those strong soft skills with basic, well-targeted music-specific training and you have an indispensable resource. Here’s to the music library factotum! Bravo, bravissimo!
