"Music for the Terrified" in Galway!

31. March 2020

One of the best things about the "Irl" in our Branch's name is the opportunity that it gives us to meet our Irish colleagues. So it was with great pleasure that Geoff Thomason and I recently travelled across the Irish sea to offer Courses & Education Committee's "Music for the Terrified" at the National University of Ireland in Galway.

Academic Music Librarians' seminar, Cardiff University

7. November 2019

While the turnout for this year's Academic Music Librarians' Seminar might have been smaller than usual (in the end there were nine of us, from Cambridge, Cardiff, London, Manchester and Oxford), there was certainly no lack of ideas or discussion.
