Building Your Case to Attend MLA ’14

Entries can be submitted <; until *midnight on January 31, central time*.

Winners will be notified by February 15, 2014, and the winning entries will be reported in the February 20, 2014, issue of MLA-FOCUS. All submissions will be displayed online and available for your fellow librarians to read and learn from. Please note: Your name will only be known to contest judges.
