Shipping expenses for the IAML-US Donated Music Project are usually covered by the individual donor or donating institution. US libraries may apply to the Neil Ratliff Outreach Fund for reimbursement of expenses. Applicants need not be IAML members. Please send applications to the Treasurer of IAML-US:
The Treasurer, the head of the IAML-US Donated Materials Program, and one elected member of the IAML-US Board will consider applications.
The items offered must be music materials, as described in the guidelines for the IAML-US Donated Music Materials Program, and may be sent only to music libraries and institutions in "post-communist" and "developing" countries (see guidelines for amplification).
Describe the quantity and type of material; estimate the cost of mailing and any customs duty the recipient may incur.
