Membership Dues

Due to the wide diversity of institution types, sizes, structures, and resources, annual dues are based on a sliding scale calculated using the full-time equivalent (FTE) of staff in a special collection – not in the entire host institution.  

Dues are assessed annually in May, with dues payments expected by August 15th.
