Iowa Library Association Membership Free for Students

Iowa Library Association Membership Free for Students

Full-time LIS students can receive free membership in the Iowa Library Association. Students can sign up for membership online.

The ILA Annual Conference is being held just up the road from SLIS at the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.

The theme for the October 13-15 conference is “Hard Times, Hard Decisions: Iowa Libraries in 2010.”

If students register by October 1, the cost is $25 (not including meals and special events). First time attendees can get a $20 coupon, but it cannot be used in conjunction with the student discount. The coupon, however, is good for two years.

Members also have access to the Catalyst newsletter, subdivision memberships (ranging from $0 to $5 annually) and electronic discussion groups on a variety of topics. New and current members can now follow the Iowa Library Association on Twitter @IowaLA

Student membership in the American Library Association is $33 per year.
