As many of our European IAML members will know, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), approved by the EU Parliament, will take effect in Europe on 25 May 2018. With reference to this I would like to send you the following information:
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.
I am happy to announce that the results of the survey taken by the participants of our 2017 congress in Riga are now available on our website.
On this webpage, if you scroll down just a little bit, you will find the following section:

It is easy to stop receiving printed copies of IAML's membership journal, Fontes Artis Musicae. Fontes is accessible online for individual members on IAML's website. The costs for printing and mailing the journal constitute a large part of IAML's budget. Please consider opting out of the printed version.
Great news has just come from the UK & Irl Branch of IAML. Two colleagues – Peter Baxter and Antony Gordon (Ag) have been elected Honorary Members of IAML (UK & Irl) in recognition of their “distinctive contribution to music librarianship and notable service to the Branch.”
