HSLANJ offers five levels of membership:

Institutional

Membership: $110 – Institutional Members shall be Libraries that support the objectives of the Association. Institutional members must be physically located in New Jersey and there can only be one Institutional Member per Library. An Institutional Membership is required for participation in the New Jersey Health Science Interlibrary Loan Network (NJHSN). Institutional Members shall designate one representative to vote on Association matters on the membership application. Once an organization has named an Institutional Representative, that representative can only be changed under the following circumstances: If the representative leaves the organization, is promoted, or the job changes significantly. Employees of institutional members other than the designated representative, may participate in Association activities, but must join as an Individual Member in order to vote, hold office or be eligible to register for CE activities at member rates. Institutional membership in HSLANJ provides automatic membership in the NJ Health Sciences Network for free, reciprocal interlibrary loan. At $11 per article, borrowing just 10 articles from other libraries in the network covers the cost of membership.
