How to Become a Member

Requests for membership consideration shall be directed to the Chair. Libraries requesting membership should include a general description of the academic programs offered in the institution and supported by the library. This description should include the scope of library holdings and include supporting statistics (e.g., number of students, collection size, materials budget, hours of service, etc.). Prospective members will provide such information by completing the IEALC Application Form (see attachments in Supporting Documentation).

The Chair will distribute this information to all liaisons and place the matter on the agenda of the next regularly scheduled meeting. Admission to membership shall be by a two‑thirds vote of the member libraries present. Each member library will have one vote. New memberships will be considered and voted upon at the Spring meeting. Memberships become effective July 1.
