As I cradle the book in my hands, flecks of its leathered paper-board cover release into the free air. Carried affectionately like dandelion wisps in the summer breeze, the flecks disperse from the margins of their centuries-old home and, fearing nothing, return to the very dust of matter from which they were born. I’m reminded in this seeing and feeling of my own mortality, my impermanent nature. I recognize myself in these flecks, not knowing how or why but that we are undeniably connected.

I am thrilled to announce that the Stanford Music Library has a new Head Librarian, Tamar Barzel. Tamar arrived at Stanford on July 1 after having spent the last three years as Assistant Research Scholar at New York University Libraries where she developed the music holdings in the Downtown Collection. Prior to arriving at NYU, Tamar was on the music faculty at Wellesley College, where she directed the ethnomusicology program and taught courses in jazz, popular music and field methods.
