Resources for AIDS Awareness Month

December 1 was World AIDS Day. The main library has created an exhibit that highlights materials in the collection related to AIDS and HIV.The Conservatory Library has a variety of materials in the collection related to AIDS and HIV, for example:

With the release of Singing For Life: Songs of Hope, Healing, and HIV/AIDS in Uganda, Ugandans demonstrate how they have triumphantly tapped the power of their traditional music to battle the AIDS pandemic. Recorded by ethnomusicologist Gregory Barz, this unique blend of music and public health has helped make Uganda's record of success against HIV/AIDS one of the best in Africa. In turn, the traditional music of Uganda is revitalized and made contemporary. Singing for Life: Songs of Hope, Healing, and HIV/AIDS in Uganda affirms the profound strength of a people's music in promoting hope and positive change. 66 minutes, extensive notes, 36-page booklet.
