ASERL Friends: Wanted to share news about an interesting new model for providing an Open Educational Resource. The Public Domain Song Anthology is being developed by a team of librarians and musicologists under the guidance of the Music Library Association. It will be hosted by the University of Virginia Library’s open access press. See below for the details about the content of the package. This Anthology is being produced under a crowdfunding model, with support levels ranging from $150 to $750 for early adopters (<-- very reasonable, if you ask me.) See https://www.musiclibraryassoc.org/page/pdsongbookpurchase for details on how you can support this endeavor. Production is expected to be complete by mid-June 2019. Please share with your colleagues! --jeb John Burger, Executive Director Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) c/o Robert W.

Hi John - We're launching our project today! Here is the announcement - I'd be grateful if you're able to share it with the ASERL Deans/ULs. Best, Kathleen Hello everyone! The Music Library Association is thrilled to announce the Public Domain Song Anthology: Popular Music for Study and Performance with modern and traditional hamonizations by David Berger and Chuck Israels.<https://www.musiclibraryassoc.org/page/pdsongbookbios> The first Music Library Association Open Edition and the first open educational score anthology, the Anthology will be published by Aperio<https://aperio.press/site/about/>, the University of Virginia Library’s open access press. The Public Domain Song Anthology is a songbook of 370 popular tunes that includes early popular music, jazz, and traditional tunes that have become part of the jazz standard repertory. Newly arranged by David Berger (Jazz at Lincoln Center) and Chuck Israels (bassist and former member of the Bill Evans Trio)<https://www.musiclibraryassoc.org/page/pdsongbookbios>, the songs are presented with both a modern and traditional harmonization – providing students and performers with expert lessons on how to realize these important tunes in the standard repertory. This is an open education project, and we are looking to secure productions costs in advance of release instead of recouping costs through sales. We are inviting libraries to purchase the Anthology with a variety of value-added options. You can purchase your copy of the Public Domain Song Anthology today!<https://www.musiclibraryassoc.org/page/pdsongbookpurchase> The publication is engraved in Sibelius notation software and will be released as Sibelius source files, musicXML, and a musicXML encoded PDF. Sibelius files are meet NVDA standards for musicians with visual impairments and musicXML files will be translated to Braille music files over time. In addition to being an accessible teaching and learning tool, because all of the tunes are in the public domain, the songbook can be used by professional musicians who are looking for repertoire to play alongside originals in small clubs and restaurants that do not have public performance licenses. David and Chuck are donating all of their original work in these arrangements to the public domain with a CC-0 license in celebration of the 13 new works included entering the public domain in 2019. We are grateful for co-publishing support from the University of Michigan Library and the Arthur Friedheim Library of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. We hope you’ll join them today in supporting this valuable music resource! <https://www.musiclibraryassoc.org/page/pdsongbookpurchase> Questions? You can reach me directly at kathleendelaurenti [at] gmail.com<mailto:kathleendelaurenti [at] gmail.com> or email openaccess [at] musiclibraryassoc.org<mailto:openaccess [at] musiclibraryassoc.org>! We look forward to making this valuable resource available. Cheers, Kathleen DeLaurenti Open Access Editor, Music Library Association
