If your personal membership is set to expire soon, NJLA has set up a system to create shorter-term individual memberships to cover this transitional gap. You can still renew your membership now, and then be covered by your institution when it joins as an EIM, without any fear of gaps in communication or unnecessary overpayment. Use the links below to renew your individual membership at any time during this six-month gap period.

Don't forget that there are still barrier-free ways to join or renew your NJLA membership, including applying for sponsored membership (free to you, no questions asked) or by selecting the hardship rate on the individual membership application form.
