The Music Archive of Monash University (MAMU) is growing both in physical space and the scope of its activities. MAMU’s offices and collections on the Fourth Floor, South Wing, of the Menzies Building are located in Rooms 404, 406, 408-410, and 412-415. The Indonesian Section of the MAMU Collection is developing closer links with the Museum of Indonesian Arts (MIA), now situated in MAMU’s premises, by the creation of *MIA@MAMU (The Museum of Indonesian Arts @ the Music Archive of Monash University)*. Their newest venture is the establishment of common database of their Collections.
Correspondence to MIA@MAMU should be addressed to:MIA@MAMU, Room S412, Menzies Building, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria 3800.
With these exciting developments, MAMU offers increased opportunities for exhibitions and working space for the Archivist and volunteers, staff, students and visiting scholars. The next function planned for later this year is the Celebration of the John Noble Bequest of Indonesian Textiles.
