Administrative Handbook



The MLA Newsletter is published four times a year, September–October, November–December, March–April, and May–June and is issued to its members for free. The purpose of the Newsletter is to keep the membership of the Association abreast of events, ideas, and trends related to music librarianship.


The editor of the MLA Newsletter solicits items for publication and scans library and other relevant literature for additional information that should be brought to the attention of members of the Association. The editor edits all material, prepares copy and oversees printing and distribution. The editor submits three reports to the President each year: the Annual Report (see section VI.D.7.), due prior to the Annual Meeting; a Spring report, due prior to the Board’s Spring meeting (usually May); and a Fall report, due prior to the Board’s Fall meeting (usually September) and sends copies to the chair of the Publications Committee. The editor serves as a member of MLA’s Publications Committee and receives gratis MLA regular membership and MLA annual meeting early-regular-member registration. (rev. 3/2014)
