MLA Communities


MLA caucuses are groups of members who coalesce around major themes of long-term concern to the membership, such as library specialties or medical librarian activities and services. Caucuses may also coalesce around specialized or topical themes of concern. Caucus members share information with each other and the general membership in order to educate, strategize, and further the aims of the Association. MLA members may join any MLA caucus for free for as long as they wish.

MLA caucuses offer diverse opportunities for getting involved in the specific topics you are interested in. Caucuses may offer:

  • networking opportunities
  • newsletters
  • blogs
  • other programs and services.

Community Council provides oversight and guidance in how MLA's caucuses are created, organized, and governed
