The International Association of Music Information Centres (IAMIC) is a worldwide network of organisations that document and promote the music of our time. IAMIC currently supports the work of 43 member organisations in 38 countries (2006). Each of these Music Information Centres promotes and documents the music of its own country of region over a variety of musical genres including contemporary classical music, world music, jazz and popular.


IAMIC member organisations manage extensive resources (large libraries of sheet music, recordings, biographical and research materials) and deliver promotional and artistic projects (festivals, concerts, competitions, conferences) to the public. While each member organisation focuses on the promotion of musical activities in their country or region, IAMIC works to promote international exchange on issues of common concern and brings these organisations together for collective projects.

Every year, IAMIC organises a major conference, hosted in a different country to ensure that most of its members will be able to participate as often as possible. This conference is a benchmark for information sharing and allows the promotion of an international music community. These conferences are often the starting point for a variety of cross-border projects, aiming to promote national musical culture abroad.

The Slovene Music Information Centre (SIMIC) has been a member of IAMIC since 2006.
