Historical Note

The Maryland Library Association (MLA) was founded in 1923 by a group of dedicated librarians hoping to form a collective voice of representation to further the interests of libraries within the state of Maryland. Charlotte Newell (Mrs. M. A. Newell), Secretary and Treasurer of the Maryland Public Library Advisory Commission, drafted letters to a number of Maryland librarians inviting them to attend a discussion concerning the possibility of initiating a state library association. The informal meeting was held on June 8, 1923, at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore. At that time, the group appointed a committee to draft a constitution for the proposed library association. The group organized a second organizational meeting on November 14, 1923, where the present persons elected to organize the Maryland Library Association, thereby adopting the constitution and electing officers, including the first president, Mr. Louis H. Dielman, Executive Secretary of the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. The stated objective of the early MLA was "to promote library interests in the state of Maryland." The first fifty years remained dedicated to this goal, and the MLA was instrumental in such tasks as the development of the graduate school of library science at the University of Maryland, College Park, which began accepting students in 1965. In 1975, the original goal was modified to permit the MLA to "promote and develop library interest and development and the profession of librarianship in the state of Maryland." Today, in addition to providing numerous professional development opportunities for its members, the MLA continues to actively serve the library interests of Maryland through the monitoring of and participation in legislative activities and public policy.

The governing body of the MLA, the Executive Board, consists of the following: six elected officers, three appointed officers, division presidents, and one American Library Association (ALA) Chapter Councilor. Since 1974, when the MLA filed for articles of incorporation, the executive board members have also been recognized as directors of a non-profit organization. The magnitude of responsibility wielded by the Executive Board requires they meet bi-monthly in order to discuss such issues as policy and finances.

The operating units of the MLA include divisions and round tables, advisory panels, standing committees, and temporary task forces. Divisions are long-standing groups that "represent broad based areas of concern that are stable but flexible" for the library community at large. Divisions regularly host programs and, at times, work in conjunction with other divisions to meet the needs of MLA members. Among the largest of the existing divisions are Academic and Research Libraries, Children's Services, and Technical Services. Advisory panels are relatively few in number but are very important in the creation of policy for MLA "within specific areas of jurisdiction," mainly Intellectual Freedom, Legislative, and Professional Development. Each of these panels is presided over by an appointed officer, who is also required to serve as a member of the Executive Board. The Advisory Panel of the Executive Board is responsible for filtering issues to be presented and discussed at Board meetings. The duty of the various standing committees is to undertake and carry out regular business of the MLA. Committees may change according to the evolving needs of the association and direct such tasks as marketing; binding; exhibits; nominations and elections; and awards. Finally, task forces are formed at the discretion of the MLA to research specific considerations. Subjects addressed by former task forces include finance and the Leadership Training Institute.

Information regarding the current functioning of the Maryland Library Association can be found in the official quarterly publication, The Crab, and the monthly publication Happenings, which outlines upcoming events. The MLA website is also a useful resource and can be accessed at http://www.mdlib.org (last accessed September 2004).

Series 2: Committees, Task Forces, and Interest Groups, 1926-2006 and undated (15.50 linear feet)

The operation of the committees and task forces of the Maryland Library Association produces such materials as correspondence; reports; rosters of members; program flyers; work plans; annual and mid-year reports; meeting agendas and minutes; and memos. The contribution of committee files has been sporadic over the years, thereby resulting in a random assortment in which some committees and task forces are thoroughly documented while other files contain relatively little information. Concerning long-standing committees, there are often gaps of years where very little, if any, information is available.

Committees that are well-represented include the Marketing Committee, Membership Committee, and Author Award Committee. These long-standing committees continue to serve the functions for which they were initially created. The Marketing Committee promotes awareness of the MLA, its goals and objectives throughout the state of Maryland. The Membership Committee tracks members and promotes membership within the MLA. The Awards Committee accepts and reviews nominations for annual MLA awards presented to deserving members. Committee files with limited information include the Binding Committee, Fundraising Committee, and Grievance Committee.

It should be noted that several files maintained by the Scholarship Committee on scholarship applicants are closed for a period of seventy-five years or until the death of the individual concerned. Applicants are members of the MLA who request funding for conferences or continuing education programs. In addition, materials of the Nominations and Elections Committee continue those of the Nominating Committee and cover the annual elections of MLA office holders. The materials in these files are arranged first chronologically by year and within years, intellectually following the election process. Related materials may be found in Series IV, Election of Officers of MLA. Files of the Conference Committee are found with the Conference materials in Series X.

Arrangement of the series is alphabetical by name of the committee or task force. Arrangement within folders is chronological. Some committees contain topical files representing an especially important event or function of the group.

Series 10: Conferences, 1938-2006 (4 linear feet)

The contents of this series include materials relating to all previously held Maryland Library Association conferences, mostly concentrating on the annual conference. Such materials include conference committee agendas and minutes; pre-conference registration forms; program flyers; conference site brochures; program presenter agreements; budgets; menus; and schedules. Additionally, most of the official programs from the conferences between 1977 and 2006 are located in the series. All records of the Conference Committee are interfiled within the conference files, rather than placed in Series II: Committees, because of the intrinsic nature of the included materials. The annual conferences are sometimes referred to as "spring" conferences. The series also includes a listing of conference themes, dates, and locations for the years 1970 through 1983 and the text of the speech at the 1990 conference by then-ALA president Patricia Wilson Berger. A favorite location for MLA conferences is Ocean City. Notable materials include Baltimore Sun clippings concerning the 1966 annual meeting. Arrangement is chronological according to conference.
