ISSUE NO. 4 NOVEMBER 2001
There is no doubt in my mind that our 50th anniversary congress in Perigueux was an event to remember, and hearty congratulations must go to the French Branch of IAML for putting on such a splendid show. The location was excellent, both the Nouveau Théatre, and Perigueux itself, not to mention a gourmet selection of restaurants at which to dine!
Here is a personal reminiscence of the meeting, contributed by Guy Huot, Secretary General of the IMC.
News from the UK!The UK branch has launched "ENCORE!", the new online national union catalogue of performance sets (accessible through the IAML-UK website), edited by Malcolm Jones. Baroness Blackstone, Minister for the Arts, officially launched it at the British Library on 16 October.
The European Union project PULMAN (Public Libraries Mobilising Advanced Networks) is proceeding well. IAML's first interim report on Access to Music and Non-print Materials has been submitted. We would now like to hear from all those countries which did not respond to the questionnaire, as the final report has to be ready well before Christmas. Come on colleagues! We need you. Answers to Pam Thompson (email@example.com)

WANTED - PUBLIC MUSIC LIBRARIANS!
Kirsten Voss Eliasson would like to compile a list of IAML members who are either Music Librarians in public libraries, or who work in Public Libraries that have music collections. Please could those of you who fall into these categories send details of your name, library, and email address to Kirsten, at firstname.lastname@example.org . If any national branches are able to help out, by sending her details of their members who work in public libraries, I'm sure this would be appreciated. Thank you!
An invitation from RISM!

Leslie Troutman, Fontes Reviews Editor, would like to hear from those IAML members interested in writing book reviews for the journal. She currently has a number of recent titles awaiting review. If you would like information about this, please contact her at email@example.com. In your message include a sentence about your areas(s) of expertise and interest. She is particularly keen to hear from members outside North America and Great Britain (though members from those areas certainly will not be turned away!). On a related note: if you are aware of a recent publication in your country that should be known by the membership and therefore wold be a good candidate for a Fontes review, please contact Leslie.

CONFERENCE DATES OF INTEREST
Our Past-President, Pam Thompson, suggested that it would be both useful and interesting to list in the Newsletter the dates of forthcoming conferences that might be of interest to IAML members. These would include associations with which we are affiliated, those concerned with music librarianship, meetings of national branches, plus any other relevant meeting dates that members would like to send in. So. IAML members, please send me the dates of any conferences you think might be of interest to your colleagues. Who knows, someone might be passing through your country at the crucial time, and be delighted to look in at your annual meeting!
FUTURE IAML CONFERENCES
Please send contributions and comments to the IAML Secretary General, email@example.com or to any Board member. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to the Carleton University Librarian, for allowing me to put the newsletter on our Library server, and to my colleagues in the Carleton University Library Systems Department and to the IAML Webmaster, Massimo Gentili-Tedeschi, for their web assistance!
