  • Make an impact; CUUL membership provides a way to extend the reach of your organisation’s impact. Members increase their institution’s visibility and build connections by sharing the results of research and study, serving on a multi-institutional committee, or hosting a CUUL event. Members have the opportunity to contribute to future CUUL publications and to help determine the future direction of this consortium.
  • Collaborate at conferences, workshops and events, and also soon through an online member mailing list. CUUL members keep in touch and work together. Members share knowledge and advice, form lasting partnerships, and seek new ways to collaborate both in person and at a distance. The CUUL forges alliances with leaders in industry as well as education to provide its membership with a broad network of expertise from which to draw.
  • Active membership in CUUL denotes significant involvement in a respected professional community.
