Last Saturday, after chairing a session on nineteenth century music in Belfast, I reached my Trinity College Dublin room at 11.35 pm, in readiness for the IAML (International Association of Music Librarians) Dublin Conference starting on Sunday. An unearthly time to arrive, but there were still people there in the Accomodation Office! Impressive, eh?
Delegates were surprised to find a handwritten note on their residence door one day requesting them NOT to slam their doors. A shushing librarian? On the contrary - our self-closing doors were disturbing a foreign summer-school student!
But what do music librarians do at conferences?
