        So many of us spend our energies being entertainers that we short
ourselves in learning how to properly document what we do (I know I
certainly don't know how to document things). And yet, documentation is
hardly valueless. When entering a competition, it can make a big
difference whether or not a piece is period, or for that matter, whether
or not you even know if it's period. So how can you tell? How do you find
out? I will be the first to admit that I haven't a clue.
        But, while floundering about on the Internet trying to date
several pieces of music, I happened upon what may turn out to be a truly
wonderful resource. It's the Online Library of Congress "Ask a Librarian"
feature, at http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/. Since I am at least
intelligent enough to know that I haven't a clue when it comes to
reference tracking, hey, how about getting an expert reference tracker to
do the legwork for me? Price: $0.00.
        I only submitted my questions this afternoon, so I can't give you
a real opinion on the value of it yet, but I'll keep you posted.

              In Service,

                      Iain MacCrimmon
