Committees: Publications


The MLA Publications Committee provides general direction for the Association’s publications program (both print and electronic), which is currently represented by the quarterly journal Notes, three co-published monographic series, the MLA Newsletter, the Music Cataloging Bulletin, and the Basic Music Library. Working closely with MLA’s co-publisher, A-R Editions, the committee establishes general policies and procedures; provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, problems, and concerns relating to MLA’s publications; and, under the direction of the MLA Board, initiates regular strategic planning within the context of an ever-changing publications landscape. The committee does not approve individual publications or make editorial decisions; however, it is available to provide guidance to editors, committees, and chapters. (rev. 2/2013)
