New Zealand / Aotearoa


Portman, Marilyn, Fontes Artis Musicae


Our annual conference was held at the National Library of New Zealand in Wellington on 7 and 8 November 2013. The keynote speaker was Dr Philip Norman, the inaugural Lilburn Research Fellow at the National Library, who reflected on his forty years of activity as a composer, musicologist and music publisher in New Zealand. Other sessions included an engaging discussion with Kate Mead, production manager of Radio New Zealand Concert, and a presentation by Simon Grigg who talked about his new archive in "Audioculture: The Noisy Library of New Zealand Music."

On the second day, musicologist Peter Downes shared his exciting discovery of New Zealand musician Harry Norris, who had been employed as musical director and conductor with the Doyle Carte Opera Company in London. His research is hopefully going to end up as a book about this New Zealander who went to the other side of the world.

We also explored the joys of discovery layers (do they really help us to find music?) and the case for using Creative Commons licences. After a tour of the newly refurbished Victoria University Library, one of the important highlights was the opportunity to have the National Librarian, Bill MacNaught, talk to us. He emphasized the challenges that have arisen out of being a part of the Department of Internal Affairs but also mentioned the positive outcomes of the new refurbishment of the building: it was completed on time, within budget, and achieved their desired outcomes. He made it clear that he is very open to hear any concerns that we have as an organisation about the impact of the restructuring and so this was a great start to further dialogue. IAML(NZ) has since followed up on this by sending out a survey and will be feeding this back to the National Library in due course.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

We had a good turn-out for the AGM and covered much ground. At the AGM, our secretary, Joan Clayton, stepped down and Elizabeth Smith took on this role for the next year. Joan Clayton has since been given a Life membership of IAML (NZ) in recognition of her dedicated work and commitment to the organization. There was discussion about our future conferences, the Lilburn Centenary in 2015, and how IAML (NZ) could be involved.

During 2013, we had several members attend international conferences. Phillippa and John McKeown-Green, Alan Badley, and Marilyn Portman presented papers at the IAML Vienna Conference and Elizabeth Smith and Matt Steindl attended the IAML (Australia) conference in Perth.

Music cataloguing with RDA

On Saturday, 9 November, in collaboration with the National Library and Alexander Street Press, IAML (NZ) helped to run a one-day workshop on music cataloguing with RDA. Facilitated by Chris Todd, team leader of cata loguing at the National Library, 12 cataloguers from around the country participated in a very practical session. Feedback has been all extremely positive and we hope that there will be further opportunities for future collaborations such as this. …
