** Recruitment message sent to IAML-L on 19 May 2021


IAML's Cataloguing and Metadata Section is seeking member participation!


We are a group of all levels of expertise who are interested in addressing issues of international scope that relate to music resources. We add an important voice to developments of standards, and we support each other's work in the music library community. We are the maintenance agency for IFLA's code lists for musical forms and medium of performance, and we work toward building more globally inclusive vocabularies.


IAML sections have no formal membership other than the chair, vice-chair, and secretary. In the Cataloguing and Metadata Section, those who volunteer become the project leader, and may form a working group. At the moment, we are particularly seeking members to fill the positions of Section Secretary and Representative to the Permanent UNIMARC Committee (IFLA). Interested members please contact vice chair Kimmy Szeto <kimmy.szeto@baruch.cuny.edu>. 


We are looking forward to reconnecting with each other at the IAML Online Congress 2021, and working on strengthening mutual assistance for our colleagues who have been made isolated from the cataloguing and metadata community.
