I am here to highlight an issue that faces my University and I hope you can help, as I’ve seen you do great things in the past and this is something that means a lot to me.
As of a few weeks ago The University of Melbourne declared the Louise Hanson-Dyer Music Library [the only music library on campus] to be removed in order to “enable academic performance” under the BIP restructure of the University. Essentially what this means that Australia as well as the Southern Hemisphere will lose one of the most extensive music libraries it has to offer. This not only affects the jobs of the dedicated librarians but also every single student who wishes to pursue music as a career throughout the region.
If this action passes it will greatly reduce the worth of both the Bachelor of Music degree at Australia’s #1 University, but also hinder the quality and compromise the future of all music students. This is because even if they choose to move the music resources and score collections to another campus many students will suffer due to being unable to get to said campus. Furthermore the secondary campus in Southbank (approximately half an hour away from the Conservatory of Melbourne) doesn’t have the room or ability to assimilate the resources into its own library meaning many scores and resources will either lost, put into storage or get spread out to other Universities within Australia meaning that no student will have access to the information required to complete there degree.
If you love, respect or appreciate the creation of music or music in general please sign this petition, share it with your followers and spread the news.This library has come to mean a lot to me over the past few years as a composer, and I would hate to see it go.
