Whether you're new to medical libraries or a seasoned professional, MLA's Regular Membership connects you with the professional, colleagues, and activities you need! In addition to networking, professional development, and advocacy core benefits, MLA offers you the following:
The Journal of the Medical Library Association, your professional journal
Featuring research and comment on library management, new technology, the changing roles of information professionals, ethics, and economic issues, as well as expert book and software reviews. You may receive the Journal as a print publication, or access online only via PUBMED Central. Members receive an electronic table of contents quarterly.
Save 25% to 50% on MLA booklets, such as Copyright Law and the Health Sciences Librarian and DocKits. Also save 10% or more on any MLA monograph through MLA's copublishers.
Monitor the latest job offerings in medical librarianship worldwide with job opportunities on MLANET, via RSS feed or on LinkedIn or Facebook, and with annual meeting placement and Resume Clinic services.
Learn more in your specialty and be recognized for your expertise with MLA's variety of grants, scholarships, awards, and honors. You can also receive a substantial discount on your membership in the Academy of Health Information Professionals, the credentialing program for medical librarians.
You may become immediately involved in all of the association's programs, but if you can't, we still listen! Register your voice through MLA's annual ballot elections or on association business at the annual meeting. Your vote counts! And, as a regular member, you're also eligible to hold office at the national, section, and chapter level and to chair important association committees.
