Helmut Kallmann Award (CAML)

Helmut Kallmann Award
presented by
The Canadian Association of Music Libraries, Archives and
Documentation Centres (CAML)

This is an open invitation for nominations for the seventh Helmut Kallmann Award for distinguished service relating to music libraries, archives and documentation centres, with a focus on music in Canada.  Both nominators and nominees may or may not be members of CAML.  The Award is named in honour of Dr. Helmut Kallmann, the pioneering Canadian musicologist, who was Chief of the National Library of Canada’s Music Division from its inception in 1970 to 1987 and a co-founder of the Canadian Music Library Association (the predecessor of CAML).
