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 and Library Espresso Shot tutorials 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 and Library Espresso Shot tutorials we add to our ever-expanding body of library-specific webcasts and tutorials during your subscription year!

Follow the links for a printable list of the available webcasts and Library Espresso Shots.  You'll also find description links and lengths of each webcast or tutorial. 

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

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

FYI – Our videos work best when viewed in the Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers.

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


Each registration entitles the registrant only to access the webcasts. Registrations may not be shared in any way or viewed in a group setting. 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.
