More information on the convention will soon be forthcoming.

Departmental Memberships

A Departmental Membership enables a department's adjunct faculty and graduate students to join the MMLA without having to pay for an individual membership.  Adjunct faculty and graduate students who wish to take advantage of their department's Departmental Membership should enroll at an individual Membership level (see above), select the "Invoice me" option at the payment stage of their enrollment, and then email their invoice to [email protected] with the name of the university and department whose Departmental Membership is covering their membership fee.  After verifying your department's Departmental Membership, the MMLA staff will mark your enrollment invoice as "paid."  To determine whether your department has a Departmental Membership, please search for your department's name in the membership directory

Institutional Memberships

The MMLA welcomes institutions like public, private, and university libraries to become members.  Like individual members, institutional members of the MMLA receive digital access to all published issues of JMMLA as well as all issues of its predecessor publication, the MMLA BulletinTo establish your institutional membership, please select the "Join" option in the Quick Links, or click here
