MLA President Jerry Perry wrote another blog post on MLA’s continuing advocacy efforts. In his post Jerry describes MLA’s joint efforts with the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL).
Often times we become focused on our local or personal situations or evironment so it is nice to read what MLA, AAHSL, GRC, and the Joint Legislative Task Force are doing on a national level. As Jerry mentions, “each of us has a responsibility to be an advocate for our profession, there is also a need for coordinating our message of value to our nations leaders.”
So while we are personal advocates for our own situations, it is always a good idea to keep an eye open for the alerts from the GRC, MLA, etc. to see where our personal voice can be added to the collective when it is need.
