The IAML National Branch of Greece was founded in 2016 in order to support the activities of music libraries, archives and documentation centers in Greece and encourage collaborations between Ιinstitutions and individuals in the field of music librarianship, archiving and music information. The Greek Branch in 2023 consists of 15 institutional and 15 individual members.

One of the Branch's main goals was the creation of working groups that would support specific areas of interest (cataloguing, documentation and digitization, promoting best practices in management of analog archival material, use of musical thematic headings, etc.). Today the Greek Branch has five active working groups:

  1. Working Group for an Inventory of Libraries, Archives and Collections with Music Material (Access to Music Archives - GR),
  2. Music Librarianship Study Group,
  3. IAML-GR Advocacy Group,
  4. Conference Proceedings Editorial Team,
  5. Digital Exhibitions Curation Team.

IAML-GR has already organized four conferences (proceedings will be available online shortly) and has published various guides on music librarianship and archiving in Greek. At the same time the Greek branch often organizes workshops and online presentations of various institutions’ music archives and collections in Greece.

Members of the Greek IAML Branch contribute to RILM and RISM.
