For the first time RILM and IAML join forces in Asia, at the one-day conference on 16 June, “Music Information in Asia and Advancement of International Collaboration: Searching the Music Source and Connecting the Music Libraries”. Supported by academic societies, each organization separately collects, preserves, and references information on music sources, and disseminates knowledge, collaborating predominantly with Europe and the US. This conference aims to include Asia in the processes and discussions to create meaningful ties and develop various levels of collaboration for the future. For the schedule, please visit https://iamlrilmrikkyo2018tokyo.jimdo.com/ and feel free to attend if you are in Tokyo on 16 June. Editor-in-chief Barbara Dobbs Mackenzie and Executive Editor Zdravko Blažeković would be happy to meet with you during their extended stay in Japan.
