From today's Monday Memo:
Marian Kienholz, a long-time Libraries staff member who retired in 1991, passed away earlier this summer and a notice appeared recently in the Star Tribune:
Marian was the former music cataloger here at the U. I remember meeting Marian at one of the very first Midwest Chapter (Music Library Association) meetings that I attended. I'll be sure to pass this news on at the Chapter business meeting next week. My sympathies to her remaining family and friends...

New Music Genre: Wizard Rock
From American Libraries Direct:
"The Wizard Rock movement and literacy"
A new music genre called Wizard Rock features songs related to the Harry Potter books, played by bands like the Remus Lupins and Harry and the Potters. Josh Bernstein writes: â€œAlmost every one of these bands on their Myspace or website mention that one of their goals is to promote literacy. Some even have links to sites or pdfs you can download explaining how to help promote literacy in your own area.â€?...
from Alternative Teen Services, Sept. 8
So, far, no LCSH for "wizard rock" but LC does have a minimal record for the Harry and the Potters CD...
