How to Become a Member of LAMP

Membership in LAMP 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 LAMP-funded material in accordance with CRL’s lending policies. These materials are available through the Center for Research Libraries’ online catalog and are in OCLC.

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). Members in North America are assessed an annual membership fee of $800.
Members in Latin America pay 25% of the full membership fee, meaning at this time the membership fee for Latin American institutions is $200.  When borrowing physical materials, Latin American LAMP members must pay for the shipping of the materials in both directions.

See the LAMP prospectus for more details.
