Ray Heigemeir

Public Services Librarian for Music

I oversee all aspects of public service for Music including reference, circulation, instruction, and facilities. I assist patrons in finding and using music research resources, provide tours, mount exhibits, and facilitate digitization requests. I maintain an active current awareness program and am the primary blogger on music topics  for the Stanford Libraries blog. I serve as webmaster for the Music Library site, and assist in developing the SUL web presence through work with the Online Experience Group.
