The International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and
Documentation Centres, United Kingdom Branch (IAML UK) announces the
publication of the Library and Information Plan for Music: Written
Statement, prepared by Susi Woodhouse. Information on the availability
and use of printed and recorded music was provided by music librarians
in the public, academic, and national sectors, and by library users and
commercial suppliers. The findings of this research have now been
published, the written statement including a summary of the resources
available in music libraries, information centres, and commercial
organizations. The statement also covers cooperative lending schemes,
staffing, training, and data control. A number of options are given for
taking the plan forward, and more than fifty recommendations are made.
An interim development group is now looking at ways to carry out these
recommendations. Copies of the report are available ([pounds]10.00 each)
from IAML(UK) Publications Officer, 47 Berriedale Avenue, Hove, East
