SitStayRead at the MLA Conference

SitStayRead is the charity of choice for the 2019 MLA Conference in Chicago!

Thanks to the generosity of MLA members, SitStayRead is the charity of choice for this year’s event! Many MLA members have donated supplies and books for our programs, and the money raised during this event weekend will go back to our programs and to the students we serve.

SitStayRead will be present at the event with volunteers and Certified Reading Assistance Dogs to talk to members about our organization and to raise money for our programs!

This is MLA’s premier event and draws more than 1,700 participants including medical librarians and other health information professionals, international attendees, and exhibitors. MLA’19 offers a variety of opportunities for attending educational sessions, seeing the latest products in the Exhibit Hall, and networking with colleagues.

The meeting is a 4 and 1/2 day interdisciplinary educational experience, with a 3-day commercial exhibition that attracts over 100 exhibitors from around the world. Meeting highlights include the John P. McGovern Award Lecture, the Janet Doe Lecture, and over 200 peer-reviewed papers, lightning talks, and posters.

Thank you to all the members who have donated and to the MLA for thinking of SitStayRead!
