Membership for commercial companies and representatives

  • As of 2018, the fee for commercial companies, such as publishers, to join as affiliate members is €500 per annum. Please contact us to join.
  • For postal mailing labels to members, there is an additional fee of €150 (maximum two mailings per year)*
  • For email mailing to members, there is an additional fee of €300 (maximum two mailings per year)*
  • Affiliated membership is combined with an advertisement fee in JEAHIL. Advertising in JEAHIL for at least 1000 Euro, within an issue or on the journal website, will give free affiliated membership for one year.
  • Commercial company representatives can join EAHIL’s email distribution lists, but may not use the lists for advertising.
  • Commercial representatives receive early information about EAHIL conferences and workshops.
  • As affiliate members, commercial representatives may participate in committees and attend general assemblies, but do not have voting privileges.

* Mailing members: Only those members who actively agree to receive product information by either print or email will be included in these lists. Email addresses of individual members are not shared: affiliate members are given access to a moderated email distribution list.

Membership for information professionals living outside the member states of the Council of Europe

  • There is no membership fee for information professionals living and working outside the member states of the Council of Europe.
  • Your membership application will not be accepted without evidence that you are a librarian or information professional – for example, evidence of valid membership of a national or regional professional association (e.g. AHILA, MLA, CMLA etc.) or a letter of reference – and verifiable details of your institutional affiliation.

Institutional membership

  • Since individual membership of EAHIL became free, the benefit of institutional membership for libraries has greatly diminished.
  • At present, we encourage new members to use individual membership instead of institutional membership.
