Massachusetts Library Association
Technical Services Section
We invite professional librarians and paralibrarians to join the Technical Services Section (TSS) of the Massachusetts Library Association (MLA).
Even if you’ve never served on a MLA committee or any professional committee, fear not! By checking off TSS on your MLA member application or renewal, you are a bona fide member and you need not be an officer to attend a meeting. There are no extra dues to be a TSS member.
We organize and sponsor one day of programs at the MLA annual conference, and look forward to extending our area of activities aimed at advancing the interests of all library workers who provide support for collections in either public, academic or special libraries across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
TSS is affiliated with the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).
Join us! Meet your colleagues! Enhance your skills and knowledge!
For more information please contact Meredith Crosby, current TSS Chair.
The objectives of the Section are: to provide a forum for discussion and programming dealing with technical services and technology; to maintain and enhance career awareness; to facilitate the exchange of information on recent developments in technical services and technology; and to respond to the changes in accordance with the membership's wishes.
