IAML-L is the mailing list of IAML. Its aim is to improve communication between music librarians, to learn from each others' experience, to debate professional subjects and to share problems or information. People who have questions of a music bibliographic nature or need the help of a music librarian are welcome to send a message to the list. IAML-L includes more than 600 subscribers.
Any use of communications or subscriber contact information for commercial purposes is unacceptable and will result in removal from the list.
