Military Libraries Training Workshop 2021
Surviving | Adapting | Leading

MLTW is the biennial workshop of SLA's Military Libraries Community. Military librarians from all branches of the military and representing all types of libraries (academic, public, medical, and technical) meet to share ideas, challenges, and solutions. It is the only such workshop of its kind.

Attendance is $50.00 per attendee. MLTW 2021 is virtual. As our overhead is lower, we are reducing the cost of attendance for all.

The registration page is now live. We have confirmation that attendees will be able to use FEDLINK Training Funds Accounts to pay for attendance to MLTW 2021. [Note: the deadline for the use of FEDLINK Training Funds to register has passed.]
