We hope you had a great week at IAML/IMS 2015 at The Juilliard School! IAML.info is seeking posts from Congress attendees reflecting on their experience at the 2015 Congress in New York.
The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres encourages and promotes the activities of music libraries, archives and documentation centres to support and facilitate the realization of projects in music bibliography, music documentation and music library and information science at national and international levels.
Posted on behalf of our Secretary General Pia Shekhter.
I was feeling a little sad by the thought of spending Midsummer all by myself in New York... Then I noticed the following tip from Janie G:-)
The Web Team is pleased to announce the release of the new IAML website! This page has a more intuitive organization and a more welcoming layout. The new website has been designed to function through both desktop and mobile (phone/tablet) browsers. We hope that it is easier for both IAML members and for people interested in IAML to find information on the organization.
