The Association for Recorded Sound Collections is pleased to introduce a Student Membership Rate, at a very favorable, discounted price. For the first time since the organization was founded in 1966, full-time students can now enjoy all ARSC benefits and privileges for just $20 per year—nearly half off the regular Individual Membership Rate.


Each year, members receive two issues of the ARSC Journal, three issues of the ARSC Newsletter, and may attend the annual conference for a reduced registration fee. All members receive a copy of the current biennial ARSC Membership Directory, which lists approximately 1000 individual and institutional members, along with their contact information and collecting interests.
