Welcome to the MCLS booth at the MLA Annual Conference!

On behalf of everyone at the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services (MCLS), I’d like to welcome you to the Michigan Library Association (MLA) 2020 Annual Conference. We are pleased to support MLA in offering you the best online conference experience possible, at this time when so many, including our staff, would much prefer being together in person.

I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage you to become an MCLS member if you have not yet joined. We serve hundreds of libraries of all types throughout Michigan (and Indiana), providing group licensing and discounts on eJournals, eBooks, databases, and library supplies, as well as training in current library topics and methods including cataloging, digital literacy, and our popular Soft Skills series, professional networking opportunities such as our 2020 Virtual Dialogues, and support and consultation on a number of topics including strategic planning.

Our annual membership rates are very affordable, and again, I invite you to join us. Please learn more about MCLS below or at, and contact us regarding how we may serve you, or should you have questions.

Enjoy the MLA Annual Conference, and I hope you will take advantage of our services as a member library.

Scott Garrison
Executive Director
