The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres (IAML) is pleased to announce the call for papers and posters for the IAML Congress to be held at the National Library of Latvia, Riga, 18-22 June 2017.
IAML is delighted to announce the establishment of the H. Robert Cohen/RIPM Fund for IAML Congress Travel.
This is the second fund established by The Cohen Family Charitable Fund to support travel to IAML congresses for librarians attending their first or second congress. The new fund complements the Liesbeth Hoedemaeker-Cohen Fund for IAML Congress Travel, established in 2017.
The elections for a new IAML Board have now been terminated and a new board has been elected.
The elections were for President with a six-year term (one year as president-elect, three years as president, and two years as past president) and for four vice-presidents with a term of three years each.
The new IAML Board will take up office after the 2019 General Assembly in Kraków.
This year the elections are run by the Electoral Reform Services in the UK, and within the next few days, you will all receive an e-mail from them with instructions on how to vote. Only members who have paid their annual fee for 2019 are allowed to vote in the elections.
Everyone will receive a personal log-in and password from the Electoral Reform Services with a link to the voting site. By clicking the link, you will be taken to the election page, where you just follow the instructions and go through the process.

The role of the IAML Historian is to chronicle the development of IAML as an international organisation. This work can take several forms including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:
