NEMLA plays an active role in facilitating communication among New England’s music libraries and the personnel who manage and conserve their collections. Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting our mission or participating in our meetings.

NEMLA membership offers many benefits:

  • Add value to your professional life
  • Connect with your colleagues
  • Enhance your professional knowledge
  • Gain access to the Collective Wisdom of the chapter listserv to participate in email discussion and receive chapter announcements
  • Take advantage of professional development opportunities such as proposing presentations for the spring or fall meetings — or presenting yourself!
  • Support your own work and the work of fellow music library professionals in New England

You have two options. (Either way, you will be asked to log into your existing user profile first. Please do not create a new profile!)

    1. Pay for MLA and NEMLA memberships in one transaction.
    2. Pay for a NEMLA membership alone

Instructions for new Chapter-Only Members Who are First-Time Users of This System
  1. Go to the MLA site and click Join.

  3. On the next few pages, create a username, select your desired chapter membership, and finish your user profile. Remember the login for future use.
  4. On the final page, confirm membership type, rate, add any donations, select a chapter (if you were also joining at the national level), finish payment information, and Submit.
  5. This will set up your user profile AND it will enroll you as a chapter member. Next year, use the instructions above.
