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.
The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives, and Documentation Centres (IAML) will hold its annual conference 27 June-2 July 2010 in Moscow. The IAML Programme Committee invites proposals of papers for this meeting which concern music, collections, and/or library issues that focus on Russian libraries and collections, music, and publishers, although presentations of a general nature are also welcome. We strongly encourage the submission of papers that focus on popular or traditional music of all genres and periods and their impact on libraries.
We are deeply sad to inform you that our esteemed colleague Wolfgang Krueger passed away at the age of 66 on Thursday, 16 April 2009, after a severe illness. I'm sure most of you knew him. He was engaged in IAML for more than twenty years, for example as Chair of the Commission of Service and Training or as member of the RILM commission mixte.
His death is a tragic loss for the German IAML branch. He was our branch president for 12 years. In 1985 he became a professor of music librarianship at the Stuttgart Media University, where he trained generations of music librarians.
IAML is seeking a new Editor for its electronic Newsletter. The primary function of the Newsletter is to provide a place where IAML members can share up-to-date information. However, under the current Editor, the Newsletter has developed a much broader role and flourishes as a gathering place for relevant news from the wider world of music.
