Pricing & Policies

MCLS workshop pricing

Prices for MCLS workshops are listed in the description of each workshop. The cost listed is per person.

Group rate pricing

If you are interested in having multiple staff members attend an online workshop at a single location (e.g. a conference room), we offer a group rate*. This rate will give you a single login that you will be able to use to log in to one computer station, then you can project your screen to enable as many staff as you'd like to view and participate! Group pricing depends on the length of the workshop, but generally saves you money if you plan to have three or more staff participating. See the MCLS Store for each workshop and the Group rate associated. You can now register your group online through the regular registration process. Questions or problems registering? Contact training@mcls.org.

*Restrictions apply. Group pricing is available for most (but not all) online workshops. You can only purchase a group rate for employees of your institution (those who are not employees of your institution are not eligible to attend).

MCLS can also provide dedicated training to your staff. For more information on contracting dedicated training for your staff, please contact training@mcls.org.

MCLS workshop policies

Registration cancellation policy (no-show policy)

If you have registered for an MCLS workshop, and you are not able to attend, you must cancel in writing (via email: training@mcls.org or fax 517-394-2096) at least 72 hours prior to the workshop or you will be charged the full workshop price. The only exception will be for registrants who are unable to attend because of inclement weather. See also the Inclement weather policy below. You may, though, transfer your registration to another staff member at your institution without penalty.

Workshop cancellation policy (workshops canceled by MCLS)

MCLS will cancel workshops if there are not enough people registered or because of inclement weather. If MCLS cancels a workshop, registrants who have paid will be given full refunds.

Inclement weather policy

If you have registered for an on-site MCLS workshop and traveling may be hazardous the day of the workshop, please call the MCLS offices at 800-530-9019 ext. 404 after 6:00 am the day of the workshop. A recorded message will announce if the workshop for that day has been canceled. Only cancellations will be on the recordings. Assume the workshop will take place if there is no recording indicating cancellation.

Use your own judgment when deciding whether to attend. Those who cannot attend a workshop because of inclement weather will not be charged the workshop no-show fee. Please call MCLS if you cannot attend.

Participants with disabilities

If you have a disability that may impact your participation in a particular workshop, please let us know on your registration form and include a statement describing your disability-related needs. Someone from our staff will contact you before the workshop to discuss accommodations. We cannot ensure the availability of appropriate accommodations without prior notification of need.
