Registration Tips: 

  • Register as a NYLA Member or click on the New Customer-Register button. If you are a NYLA member and have your number, fantastic! If you are a NYLA member and do not have your member information handy or the time to retrieve it—or if you are not a NYLA member, click on the New Customer-Register button and continue the registration process.
  • As you continue the process, you will soon reach the page with a drop down menu stating “Select Type.” If you work in a librarywithin New York State, there is a 99% likelihood that your “Type” is “Member,” i.e., your library is probably a NY 3Rs member, (directly or via your library or library system), so be sure to choose the Member Rate. Here is a map of the NY 3Rs: If you are enrolled in an accredited library science program, choose the  student rate.

 Accommodation Reservation Tips:

  • You are eligible for the hotel discount even if you are not a NYLA or NY 3Rs member.
  • The hotel rooms are going fast and the blocks will soon be released, though the special rates will continue to apply, if you can find a room.
  • To get the hotel discount, it is easiest to reserve your room(s) by phone. The code for the special rates is SUNYLA (you may have to tell them, SUNY-L-A!).
  • The dorms are going to be a lot of fun and they have private baths. There are plenty of rooms available. You will find the dorm option as you click through the conference registration process. Dorm rooms are $50 per night.
