  • 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.

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.
