Membership Information

Ex Libris Association Wants You to join us!

The Ex Libris Association (ELA) is the Canadian national association interested in current and historical issues about libraries, archives, publishing houses, and related institutions and people. Membership is open to all interested parties but is primarily drawn from the ranks of retired librarians, library technicians, archivists, records managers, information technologists, and those who have worked or are working in or with libraries, archives, museums, etc. If you worked as an information professional before you retired, you can benefit from joining ELA.

How to Join ELA

Membership costs $35 per year. You can print and complete our MEMBERSHIP FORM then return it with a cheque to our mailing address, OR
