Welcome to NYLA! The New Member Engagement Subcommittee (NMES) of the Membership Committee is here to help you become better acquainted with NYLA.
We encourage you to browse the information under the Membership tab to get to know the sections and roundtables of NYLA, as well as the many benefits of membership. Of course the best way to learn about NYLA is to get involved! You can also contact any Subcommittee Member with questions or to find out ways to become active in NMES.
Attending the annual conference is another way to explore what NYLA offers. The NYLA Annual Conference and Trade Show includes quality speakers and preconference workshops for professional development, receptions and other informal networking opportunities, booths by the many NYLA sections and roundtables, the vendor trade show, and more! NMES members will be at the conference to greet and support you too.
In addition, if you have a question about librarianship, remember to refer to our Mentor Resource List to find colleagues available to help you. Most areas of the profession are covered, from readers advisory to cataloging and from resumes to networking.
Take advantage of all that NYLA has to offer – it’s your association!
