Libraries Receive Grant to Grow Musical Score Collection

We are excited to announce the Libraries have been awarded an Inclusive Excellence Grant for the upcoming academic year!

Inclusive Excellence Grants are a UM System initiative to encourage greater research opportunities for projects that focus on diversity, inclusivity, and underrepresented groups. UMKC has awarded $50,000 to support faculty and graduate students whose research and/or teaching focus on these issues.

UMKC Music/Media Library’s Head Nara Newcomer and graduate students Bryanna Beasley and Andrew Stadler collaborated on a proposal to better promote 21st century composers from underrepresented groups by adding nearly $2,000 worth of music scores to the library's collection!

We'll be hard at work purchasing and processing these scores into our collection in the coming months, so stay tuned for more!
