Dictionary of braille music signs by Bettye Krolick( Book )
3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 481 libraries worldwide
This dictionary gathers into a single resource definitions of braille music signs used since 1888 and provides explanations of the wide variety of formats in which these signs have been used at different times by publishers around the world. More than 400 music signs and approximately 100 literary abbreviations are included, but musical terms are not defined. The volume includes explanations of the relationships established by literary braille abbreviations, the use of special braille devices not used in print, and the general format or arrangement of the signs on the braille page. Since it contains signs and formats no longer approved for use, it should not be used as a manual for the transcription of music. The dictionary is published in large print and braille editions and includes a selective bibliography and an index of terms, subjects, and proper names. (Raa)

The book is intended to provide an overview of the needs of blind and physically handicapped individuals who are unable to use print resources and to describe practices designed to meet those needs. An initial section reviews the history of library services to this population, noting federal legislation and agencies which serve them. A detailed history of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped is included. Part 2 includes papers on users (results of questionnaires, interviews, and site visits), materials and publishers (including braille, large type materials, and music services); reading aids and devices; state programs from the perspective of a state librarian; and the National Library Service Network. Part 3 presents four papers on the following topics: school library media services, public libraries (services for the blind and physically handicapped); academic library services (facility accessibility, financial considerations); and training and research in librarianship. The final section shifts to an international orientation; the papers in this section focus on developments in library services for blind and physically handicapped persons in other countries and international cooperation.
