The IAML Congress in 2024 will take place in Stellenbosch, South Africa, 23 - 28 June.

Robert Cohen / RIPM Fund for IAML Congress Travel. Deadline: 27 February 2024
Music brings people together, and IAML membership supports our aim to make music internationally accessible through acquisition and lending, preservation and digitization, cataloguing and bibliography, and documentation and research. Moreover, most music librarians and archivists serve as educators, opening up the vast world of information and repertoire during their daily interactions with students, faculty members, researchers, musicians, and the general public. We work internationally on multiple fronts to promote and protect musical heritage among diverse cultures, because the importance of music in the lives of the world's peoples is something we truly cherish.
After the IAML midterm Board meeting in Vienna 19-20 January, I took the train to Budapest. I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity to meet so many friendly members of the Hungarian IAML Branch – a branch that clearly is full of vitality.
Yet another IAML-year has passed and it is a pleasure for me to share with you a summary of what has happened during this eventful year.
