Membership in SEAM is open to any institution or nonprofit organization maintaining a library and whose interests coincide with the project.
Member institutions are entitled to borrow, via Interlibrary Loan or by fax or electronic document delivery, all SEAM-funded material in accordance with CRL’s lending policies. These materials are also available through the Center for Research Libraries’ online catalog, and are in OCLC. Members receive a copy of the latest holdings list developed by the project.
Members receive discounted prices on purchasing microform material filmed by the project and within copyright limitations. Members also participate in the programmatic direction and governance of the project by proposing and voting on materials to acquire or film under the project.
Membership is assessed on an annual basis (beginning in July). Full members are assessed an annual membership fee of $800. New members are also assessed a one-time fee (currently $800) to support access to the historical collection of SEAM material.
See the SEAM prospectus for more details.
