The Beta Phi Mu International Library and Information Studies Honor Society (Beta Phi Mu) invites applicants for Professional Membership. This membership category is intended for those who meet all requirements for Regular Membership (GPA of at least 3.75 upon graduation from an ALA-accredited or approved LIS program, and professional recommendations), but for whatever reason did not join at the point of graduation.

Applicants for Professional Membership are also asked to provide evidence of their contributions to the field of library and information science. More information about this  category of membership, and a link to the application form, can be found at: http://www.betaphimu.org/membership.html.

Beta Phi Mu, established in 1948, is a formal Affiliate of the American Library Association and has been a certified member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) since 1969. The ACHS provides recognition for legitimate college and university honor societies, setting standards for organizational excellence and for scholastic eligibility. Many ACHS-certified honor societies offer professional memberships or similar membership categories.

​Interested individuals are encouraged to visit the Beta Phi Mu website for more information, or to contact Beta Phi Mu Headquarters with any questions they may have.
