The new board of the Polish National Branch of IAML had a meeting on March 13, 2018 in Katowice. President Hanna Bias invited the board to the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music Library in Katowice. The deliberations were devoted above all to the preparations of the IAML Congress to be held July 14-19, 2019, in Krakow. Matters related to the organization of the Congress and events accompanying it were discussed, as well as its advertising and promotion both during this year's IAML Congress in Leipzig and in 2019. Participants of the meeting got acquainted with the topics of 8 Polish presenters of this year's IAML Congress in Leipzig.
It is worth mentioning that two Polish libraries decided to become institutional members of IAML: the Polish Academy of Sciences - Library in Gdańsk and the Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music Library in Bydgoszcz.
In addition, it was decided to organize workshops concerning cataloguing photographs held in music archives. It was planned for October 2018 at the headquarters of the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music Library in Katowice. At the end of the meeting, the promotional activity of the Section was summarized.
