Special Rates
Early Registration. Sign up by October 7, 2000 and receive our special early bird rates!

ASIS and Sister Society Members: Members in good standing of ASIS or one of our sister societies—the Special Libraries Association, the Medical Libraries Association, and the American Association of Law Libraries—qualify for member rates. Include the name of your association and your membership number on the registration form.

If you are not already a member of the ASIS family, sign up when you register and you will qualify for the membership rate. The total package—a one-year membership and admission to the conference—is less than the non-member rate for the conference alone.

First-timer: If this is your first ASIS conference OR if you have never taken an ASIS continuing education course you can save an extra $75 off your total registration fees if you sign up for the full conference and any full-day CE course.  This offer is not available at student or retiree rates.

One-day Rates: If you can't join us for the whole conference, take advantage of our special one-day rates! Early bird and member rates are also available on single-day registrations

Other: Student and retiree rates are available for both members and non-members of ASIS.
