Welcome to the MLsg website
This is the public face of our student-run organization, which functions primarily as a peer forum for current and prospective students in music librarianship. MLSG is affiliated with the Music Library Association (MLA) through its Career Development & Services (CDS) Committee.
NEW OFFICER ELECTIONS
We’re calling for new officers for the brand new academic year! Now is your time to get involved! There are three officer positions: Membership Officer; Programming Officer; and Web Development Officer.
If you're interested in running, just send the following information to one of the current officers by Friday, Sept 20:
Full name; current school; expected degree(s); expected graduation month/year; the position you're interested in; and a short blurb about why you're interested, any ideas you might have, or any special skills you can bring to the job.
There is a lot of room for flexibility in the officer positions, so don't hesitate to run! Also, please feel free to send us an email if you have any further questions.

MLA: Music library association
The MLSG is proud of our association with the music library association. While you don't have to be a member of the MLA to be part of our group, we encourage you to do so.
Be sure to check out the Employment and Education page on the MLA site, which includes music library-related job listings, workshops, resources, cover letter and résumé review services.
Another way to stay current is to join the Association's listserv: MLA-L. And if you're going to the Annual Meeting, make sure to take advantage of the first-time attendees mentoring program!
message from the founders
"Think Globally, Act Locally" -- that's the idea behind MLSG. We think of MLSG as a portal for thinking globally and socializing globally while getting support and advice for acting locally in our capacities as future music librarians. If you are already an MLA student member, we hope that MLSG will supplement your MLA experience with student-oriented discussions and professional peer support.
