Various aspects of the magnetic properties and phase transitions observed in rare-earth-rich metallic glasses are discussed. These include the effect of random magnetic anisotropy on the character of the magnetic transitions, the phase diagram and double transitions seen in glasses in which exchange fluctuations are important, hydrogen absorption in rare earth glasses and its effect on the magnetism, and properties of phase-separated ternary glasses.
