Since 1931, the Music Library Association has served as a professional forum for building and sustaining relationships between librarians, archivists, and vendors. MLA offers many opportunities for its corporate representatives and members to inform the general membership about available publications, products, and services. Whether in the quarterly journal Notes, on the MLA Web site, or as part of an exhibit at the MLA annual meeting, advertising with MLA communicates products to a critical audience and supports MLA operations.


MLA Corporate Patrons receive a 20% discount and Corporate Members receive a 10% discount on advertising.
