The Michigan Academic Library Association (referred to as MiALA on this site, for convenience), will:
- provide opportunities for professional development, growth, leadership, and committee service for all academic librarians, library staff, and library students working in any college, community college, or university library in Michigan.
- strive to advance academic librarianship, libraries, and services
- serve as a catalyst for statewide collaboration and as a connector to national academic library interests
- educate and inform appropriate communities of the value and contributions of academic libraries, librarians, library staff, and library students
