Wisconsin Library Association has been working on improved collaboration with the Wisconsin Educational Media Association (WEMA). With the participation and advice of leaders of the Wisconsin Association of School Librarians (WASL), a multi-faceted plan to improve the representation of school librarians and their issues within WLA has emerged.

The most important feature of our plan is a new dual WLA/WEMA membership option and the dissolution of WASL as a division of WLA. Other approved goals for the collaboration include more co-sponsored conference programming, encouragement of cooperation between different types of libraries (particularly between school and public libraries within the same community), and continued emphasis on developing shared legislative priorities and strategies.
