Because we are both the New Jersey Chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries as well as the College and University Section for NJLA, there are two different paths that you can take to membership:
One path is to become a member of the New Jersey Library Association and check off the College and University Section membership on the form. Membership levels and dues information and registration information are online at:
The second path is to become a member of the Association of College and Research Libraries through ALA. Information about ACRL membership is online at: http://www.ala.org/acrl/membership
Not sure if you are a member of NJLA-CUS? Contact the NJLA Office.
Finally, if you are already a member of ACRL, then you are automatically a member of the New Jersey Chapter and can sign up to receive messages on the ACRL-NJ listserv and join our committees.
