Member Renewal

 

The Member Renewal Process will be completed entirely online using the IDS Library Account Manager.  It is the same process as last year.

Important information for the renewal process:

  • 2017 Membership Fees have been adjusted:
    • In March 2016, the IDS Board of Directors approved the reduction of membership fees for low volume shippers (members shipping under 700 packages a year).  This adjustment creates a more equitable member fee structure for low volume shippers and creates an incentive for new low-volume shippers to participate in IDS.
    • In July 2016, the IDS Board of Directors approved a 1 % increase for members shipping over 701 packages a year.
    • The fee matrix can be viewed and downloaded here.
  • IDS members can ship to libraries nationwide.  Click here for more information on nationwide shipping. Also, please note that participating in nationwide shipping is voluntary but may impact your annual package count and member category.

  • Please complete the Renewal process by Wednesday, November 30, 2016.  Invoices will be sent out in mid to late December with payment expected by January 31, 2017.


  • It is very important that information you provide be accurate and complete.  The information provided through this process will immediately display in the online IDS directory.
  • Members with Affiliates: After renewing, please call IDS at (215)348-2940 x1625 to confirm that your affiliates were successfully renewed.
