Come and hear the annual RML, NLM, MLA New England Region update.  Registration available at

Rather than using NAHSL conference time for this update we are trying something new! We are conducting this update online and before the conference so more members can participate and the conference time can be used as a question and answer / discussion session in place of the traditional update.
