During the 2017 Music Library Association Annual Meeting in Orlando, the Following Awards Were Given


During the 2017 Music Library Association annual meeting in Orlando, the following awards were given:

The MLA Citation, MLA's highest honor for distinguished service to music librarianship, was conferred upon Morris Martin in recognition of the profound impact he has had on so many people over forty years as librarian, teacher, colleague, friend, as well as supporter of MLA and our profession. In a career spanning more than forty-two years, he served as a staunch advocate for music librarianship and a mentor for generations of music librarians who have benefited from his wise counsel, unfailing support, and encyclopedic knowledge of music sources. He worked tirelessly to build impressive music collections that cut across traditional boundaries of genre and category with a genuinely democratic sensibility.
