MLA Communities

Caucuses

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

Offering diverse opportunities for getting involved in specific topics, caucuses may provide:

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

MLA members may join any MLA caucus for free for as long as they wish.

Take a look at our caucus' public pages below for information such as number of members, forum activity and resources. If you are interested in joining a caucus (or several), visit the Join a Caucus page to sign up! If you are not an MLA member and would like to know more about joining the association, please visit our member page.
