IFLA also offers the opportunity for companies who provide products and services to the library community to join as Corporate Supporters.


Institutional Members are subject to a system of differentiated banded fees. Using the UNESCO Scale of Assessment and the United Nations List of Least Developed Countries, Institutional Members are divided into three bands, according to the assessment for the country in which they are based. Country codes are obtained from the ISO 3166 alpha-2-code list.

  • Band 1 – EUR 545 (assessment is 0.251 or higher)
  • Band 2 – EUR 483 (assessment between 0.001 and 0.250)
  • Band 3 – EUR 225 (institutions from countries on the UN List of Least Developed Countries)

Institutional Members are entitled to register for two Sections free of charge. In addition to these free registrations, all Institutions will automatically be registered in the appropriate Regional Activities Section (Africa, Asia & Oceania, or Latin America & the Caribbean).

All Institutional Members are entitled to one vote.
