Libraries have played a huge part in the promotion of my books. A relationship with libraries is something I want to cherish through life. I thought I could dedicate this Sunday to this appreciation. At the same time, I get to prepare for the upcoming Music Business Management course. Why do I bring up in this context? First of all, without libraries my production would never had such a wide circulation and reach. Consequently, the amount of lectures I give have increased considerably.
A series of lectures starting next week will make the issue topical in another way. The students have had time and opportunity to familiarize themselves with the course material in advance. Such an opportunity gives the lecturer more room. The body and content of the lectures can be colored with variety of examples otherwise undoable.
My main distributor for the university libraries is EBSCO. Their e-book collection is impressive. The best thing about this is that all the students can now borrow a book – immediately. My upcoming course has 47 students. I use all three books as a course material. If only physical books were available, there should be 47 copies of it. Think about the space they take.
This writing is not intended to discriminate physical books. No, they are equally important – no matter the format. I am grateful of every addition the libraries make when taking my books in their selections – whether it is physical, e-book or an audio book.
This is to every library. Thank you for creating pre-conditions for the successful courses when taking these books. It is a great help and 32 hours of teaching through Teams become doable. All this takes place within two months, and consistency as a key. Easy access to books is something that facilitates not only navigation, but also the internalization of the matter. All the essential is immediately available and not behind many gates. When the subject is artist management and related mediator skills, it involves a lot of information.
UPDATE: Here’s the latest book. Available on EBSCO as the previous ones!
