New Webmaster and Assistant Web Editor

Gabriele Gamba has decided to resign from the position as IAML's Webmaster after serving more than a decade in this role. In order to further the work necessary for maintaining the vibrancy of IAML’s web site, and at the same time not overburden Web Editor, Jennifer Ward, I am pleased to announce that the IAML Board has approved temporary appointments for Richard Ranft, British Library (Webmaster) and Michelle Hahn, William and Gayle Cook Music Library, Indiana University (Assistant Web Editor), with a view to seeking approval from the General Assembly at the Congress in Leipzig to make these appointments permanent.  

Richard Ranft is currently the Head of Sound & Vision at the British Library, in a position he has held since 2010. He previously worked at the British Library in other roles since 1983. He has been the IASA Webmaster, which uses the same platform as our IAML Website, and where he lead them through many updates and changes to their website.
Michelle Hahn is currently working as an Assistant Librarian, Sound Recordings Cataloger, at Indiana University in Technical Services at the William and Gayle Cook Music Library. She has been in this role since 2015, and she worked previously as music cataloging librarian at Southern Methodist University. She has been active in the Music Library Association and the Music OCLC Users Group, where she has been active in social media with both Associations.
On behalf of the Board I would like to give hearty thanks to Gabriele Gamba for his long and devoted service and welcome Richard Ranft and Michelle Hahn to the Web Team.
