Desired week of blasts must be included with order. Blasts are sent only on weekdays. The total number of blasts per day may be limited.

All messages are due together 2 weeks prior to the first blast to Barb Redmond.

All messages are subject to approval by the Medical Library Association (MLA). MLA reserves the right to reject any order. The distribution of the message to MLA’s members does not constitute MLA’s endorsement or approval of goods and services. MLA’s name or logo should not be used in the message without MLA’s prior written approval.


  • Email blasts must be sent as HTML attachments. Please do not forward your blast or embed it in the body of the email to MLA, as this will result in formatting problems. Text-only email blasts may be sent as Word attachments.
  • Do not include opt-out information. MLA tracks opt-outs.
  • Please host any images on your web server.
  • Use absolute image links. The image tags should look like <img src=""> not <img src="images/logo.gif">
  • Do not use a cascading style sheet (CSS) as part of your code. Non-web-based email programs (such as Outlook) cannot interpret CSS.
  • Check your email blast by sending it through at least one email program before submitting. Files often look different in email programs than they do in a web browser.
  • Pay attention to special characters--including "smart" quotation marks, en and em dashes, and non-English characters. These may not render correctly, resulting in a messy appearance.
  • Please indicate which specific fonts you would like the text to be presented in. This avoids any problems with translation from editor to web that might occur.
  • Maximum size is 32,512 HTML characters.
  • Test email (and final email blast) will come from
  • Please leave space at bottom for MLA to add opt out link.
