Single Day Registrations:  Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

If you are registering for a seminar only, you do not have to pay single day registration rates in addition to the seminar fees.

In addition to the conference, ASIS&T will be offering full and half-day seminar courses. These highly attended professional education courses will be held on Friday and Saturday at additional fees.  You do not have to pay single-day registration fees if you are only taking a seminar course. These courses fill up fast, so sign-up early! Special event fees (seminars) are non-refundable.

Special Rates

Sister Societies
ASIS&T and Sister Society Members: Members in good standing of ASIS&T 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.

Become an ASIS&T Member
If you are not already a member of the ASIS&T 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.

This offer is not available at student or retiree rates.

Additional luncheon tickets or copies of the Proceedings may be purchased on-site. Luncheon tickets are non-refundable.

A Special Note to the Disabled
ASIS&T is committed to ensuring that no one with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated, or otherwise treated differently from other conference attendees because of the absence of an auxiliary aid or service. If you are in need of such an aid or service as outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact ASIS&T headquarters at 301-495-0900 or indicate the necessary items or services on the special needs line of the registration form.

The placement service assists ASIS&T members and meeting attendees in matching job openings with qualified candidates.  Whether looking for an entry-level position or a promotion, candidates will find the placement service an important element of their job search.  Employers will find that ASIS&T members are high quality candidates. This service is free to all participants.
