It also provides hands-on opportunities for attendees to catalog music resources using RDA.


MLA-L is a mail distribution service for music librarians and those interested in music librarianship. The listserv includes mail distribution and mail archiving and is used to distribute news about the Music Library Association and its activities. However, the list remains independent of the association.
