The Music Library Association and the Theatre Library Association use a number of software applications to ensure the best possible conference experience. Conference attendees may wish to review the needed applications and their privacy policies before choosing to register. They are listed here for your convenience.

Sched is used for disseminating the conference program in online form. It is also handy for receiving time-sensitive updates about conference changes, and it can be useful for networking and for keeping track of your own personal conference schedule. Since Sched also controls access to virtual events, it is absolutely essential for anyone attending or presenting virtually, and for anyone attending committee, interest group, or task force meetings.

Sched's Privacy Policy

Vimeo will be used to live-stream conference sessions. A Vimeo account is essential for virtual attendees. Vimeo will also be used to host recorded conference sessions after the conference, although those videos will be viewable without a Vimeo account.

Vimeo's Privacy Policy

YourMembership (YM) is, among other things, the member management system used by the Music Library Association, and the content management system for MLA's main Web site. It handles conference registrations. Non-MLA-members will need to create a free MLA account in order to register for the conference.

YM's Privacy Policy

Zoom will be used for some presentations (e.g., poster sessions, Get Involved, Tech Hub); all committee, interest group, or task force meetings; and is essential for anyone presenting virtually.
