MALA All-Access Pass for Webcasts 


Can't decide which MALA Professional Development webcast to select? How about ALL of them!

We are now offering the MALA All-Access Pass for Webcasts.

For one low price, this subscription allows you to view any of our Professional Development webcasts at any time, as often as you like, and from anywhere with internet connection for a year.

What's More? You will also be able to view all new webcasts we add to our ever-expanding body of library-specific webcasts during your subscription year!

Some of the upcoming topics include:

  • The Impact of Personality Types at Work
  • Seasonal Writing Programs at Your Library
  • Tactical Marketing: Your Library's Future Depends On It
  • Your Library Can Be a Dangerous Place: Mitigating Encounters with Threatening/Violent Patrons

If you would like to see which topics are available now, please visit our webcast page in our Professional Development section.

Please note: The MALA All-Access Pass does not include Harassment Prevention Training for Library Staff and Supervisors.


Each registration entitles the registrant only to access the webcasts. Registrations may not be shared in any way. You may not broadcast or redistribute in any way without prior approval from Mid-America Library Alliance. That includes, but is not limited to, displaying webcast via projector, large screen TV, or overhead projector.

  • MALA member: $89.00
  • Non-member: $189.00

These are pre-recorded webcasts. You do not need any special software to view and listen, just a computer! 

Your year-long subscription allows you access to the webcast folder. New subscribers will be provided the link and the password for access on the Monday following their registration (holidays excluded).

Passwords are changed frequently, and you will be provided the new passwords during your subscription year. All of the webcast handouts will be included in the webcast folder.
