Throughout this year’s Medical Library Association conference, there were a ton of fantastic books mentioned. This list, compiled by Angela Spencer, is an attempt to capture as many of them as possible into one place – an MLA ’17 reading list if you will. Where possible, the book titles will link to Goodreads. If no Goodreads page exists, an Amazon link is substituted. For those who may be inclined to avoid those sites, an ISBN is included where possible. Books are sorted alphabetically by title.

If you know of other books that were mentioned, however briefly, during a presentation at MLA ’17, please let us know – either by commenting here or reaching out to Angela or myself directly!
