For the long version of this see my blow by blow account in this post. In short, the International Association of Music Libraries (UK & Ireland branch) hold a fantastic conference every year which they call the ‘Annual Study Weekend’. This year it was held at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. It is a great chance to meet music librarians and those who work with music from around the country, hear about what’s going on in the field, learn about various relevant topics, and travel to neat places like Cambridge. I don’t like repeating myself so go read the other blog post if you want to hear more!
