MLA Mailing List Service

The MLA mailing list service is currently not available (5/6/2024). Please watch for the new MLANET, coming in June 2024, for available advertising and contact options.

MLA mailing lists let you sell directly to key buyers in the health information profession.

  • Our lists are accurate and up-to-date. We offer a money-back guarantee that your mailing will arrive at its intended destination.
  • We also offer a keycode service to track the success of our lists.

For answers to questions about mailing list rental, pricing, list counts and delivery dates, or forms, contact Kate Corcoran, 312.419.9094.

How To Place an Order

Authorized purchase orders or credit card payments are required for list orders.

  1. Download and complete the fill-in PDF order form and license agreement.
  2. Provide a copy or a sample of your mailing piece.
  3. Email your order to Kate Corcoran.

Your order will be processed within three business days of receiving all the required elements (special orders may require additional time) and sent by email. Orders will NOT be processed until a completed license agreement and mailing piece are provided. Please check your order for accuracy. Orders cannot be returned unless an error was made on our part.

Important List Rental Information

  • MLA lists do not include email addresses or telephone numbers. If you wish to reach our members by email, please consider purchasing an MLA Email Blast or becoming an MLAConnect sponsor.
  • A copy of your mailing piece (or mock-up with text) is required with your order.
  • We only ship orders after reviewing your mailing piece and obtaining a signed copy of the license agreement.
  • MLA reserves the right to refuse any list-rental order if the list use is considered inappropriate for the interests of MLA's members.
  • List brokers: The license agreement must be signed by the client receiving the list, if the list is to be shipped to the client. If the broker is receiving the list or handling the client's mailing, the broker must complete the license agreement. List brokers receive a 15% discount on stated price of lists.

Required Forms

Both forms are fill-in PDFs: please download to your system, fill in and save, and email with your mail sample.

Counts and Pricing

MLA's general lists are rented for one-time use at fixed cost; Excel delivery is included in the price. List types, approximate counts, and prices appear below. Because counts are approximate (they vary according to the number of members and subscribers at any given time), we encourage you to contact us for more accurate counts prior to your print run. This will ensure that you do not print too many (or too few) pieces for your mailing.

Order code "OK to mail to me" membership list type* Approx. count*
(as of 2/2021)
ASCA All MLA members and subscribers** worldwide (includes US and all international)
ASCUR MLA members and subscribers, US only
ACR All MLA members worldwide
ACUR MLA members, US only

* Numbers are not complete counts of all categories. Some members have opted out of receiving unsolicited mail.
** Nonmembers subscribe to the Journal of the Medical Library Association or are registered guests on MLA's website.
† An institutional membership belongs to an institution (academic medical center, hospital, other) and not an individual. However, a representative is assigned to this category of membership and this name appears on the record.

MLA Communities

Target specialty libraries and MLA members with special interests: individuals on these lists are MLA members who have opted to be part of one or more of recognized special interest caucuses of the association—from hospital to consumer health libraries, from cancer to medical informatics.

  • Please note that all names in the subgroups below, with the possible exception of annual meeting pre-registrants, are MLA members and are included in the "all MLA members" and "individual members" lists above.
  • Caucus individual or merged/purged lists are available at $1.50 per name, with a $75 minimum order.
  • If you choose multiple caucuses, please indicate if you would like separate files or one file where the lists are merged, duplicate names purged, and sorted in zip code order. We recommend combining multiple caucuses with the merge/purge option.
  • No geographic selections are available for caucus lists.
