Our improved e-commerce platform lets you manage your membership in the MGSA 24/7.
You will need a username and password to authenticate transactions (not your member number).  A secure, third-party credit-card processing site called Cybersource will finalize your purchases and your credit card statement will reflect a charge from JHUP (Johns Hopkins University Press).
