Other Membership Benefits
MLA is working hard to increase the value that you receive with your membership. Here are just a few current projects:
Online Master’s in Library Science through Drexel - special rates for MLA members: MLA members receive a discount on distance education courses taken through Drexel University. An academic member currently taking advantage of this benefit says, “The generosity of the discount is definitely a factor in my decision to join MLA.” She is saving 20% on each course thanks to MLA!
