How to Continue to

Experience MLA Membership!

Your Community. Your Education. Your Advocacy.

During the month of February, you and your colleagues hosted and attended more than 40 different events, welcoming both members and non-members to Experience MLA. We are excited to report that more than 200 non-members signed up to Experience MLA, and the different events attracted over 1,200 total registrations.

Thank you to all the caucus, domain hub, and committee members who planned and presented more than 40 high-quality and thoughtful events. Ranging from workshops and education sessions to panel discussions, presentations, and a drag queen story hour, you helped highlight the exciting diversity of the health sciences information profession and helped attendees make new connections. Look below to find recordings of events you may have missed.

And thank you to MLA members who participated, invited non-member colleagues, and expressed interest in MLA communities. And above all, thank you for sharing your enthusiasm for the profession. If there was an event you wanted to attend but couldn’t, look through our event recordings below to get the content you missed.

Even though February is over, we hope that Experience MLA month gave you a renewed appreciation for the work you do and for your medlibs peers.

Want to continue your MLA experience? Join MLA and you'll not only get more opportunities to connect with other medlibs, but you'll also get the continuing education developed for your profession. Discounted registration to MLA '22. Advocacy tools, resources, and activities to help you and your colleagues. And a wide range of communities where you can take part in the ongoing discussions and continue the conversations.

Make your professional journey more meaningful. Experience MLA.
