Abstract: The article addresses several ways in which music librarians and libraries can assist researchers conducting fieldwork. Using survey responses from field researchers and librarians, I investigate what resources and assistance researchers need to conduct high-quality fieldwork and what librarians have to offer, from electronic tutorials to contacts with experts in a variety of fields. I conclude that music librarians can better serve field researchers by creatively using skills and knowledge we already possess.
