The Canadian Association of Music Libraries Archives and Document Centres was founded in 1971. Our members work in a variety of organizations that support musical activities in Canada, including libraries, archives, conservatories, and universities.

CAML is the Canadian branch of the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres (IAML). Members of CAML can choose to join only CAML, or to also join IAML.

We hold annual meetings, usually at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. We collaborate with the Canadian University Music Society to develop a joint program for our conferences.

We welcome anyone who shares our interests in music librarianship, archives, and scholarship to join CAML. If you have any questions about CAML or our work, please feel free to contact any member of the CAML Board.

For more information about CAML, see the article in The Canadian Encyclopedia.
