Why I joined IAML Australia

I joined IAML Australia because of the wonderful and supportive people who are part of this network. Working with music poses certain challenges not seen in other libraries. On top of that we often work in small teams (sometimes even flying solo!) so it is easy to lose focus and energy for this work. IAML Australia gives me opportunities to meet like-minded people, each of them having unique and fascinating stories, who share the same passion for music. Every time we meet they remind me how much I love doing what I do.
