How do I join ALA?

Why should you spend the money to join a professional organization?  You’re a student, we know.  Money is tight and every dollar has to count.  But joining ALA is not an expense, it’s an investment.  As a member of ALA, you can count on the following benefits:

  • Tangible benefits such as a subscription to American Libraries (11 issues per year)
  • Discounts on ALA publications and graphics
  • Member rates at conferences
  • Special travel and tour benefits
  • Voting privileges
  • Professional support through active national programs in legislation, intellectual freedom, standards, research, technology, and more
  • Information and networking for professional development
  • A voice in the future of your profession

Membership in the UK Student Chapter of the ALA is automatic when you join the national organization. Currently the student rate to join ALA is $33.00 and you can enroll online.  We really hope that you will partner with us and join the premier professional organization for librarians and information professionals.
