Members at this level are entitled to 3 free library loans per year with subsequent loans subject to a loan fee of $10 for print documents and $5 for photocopied or faxed material. All loans include free mail delivery and pre-paid return. Also, the Muniscope membership entitles an organization to register one department and up to 5 employees for web access.

Step up to the Muniscope Plus membership level at $400.00 per year and add unlimited free loans, unlimited web registrations of staff and departments from your organization and 5 free hours of research to your package. After you’ve used your 5 free hours of research, additional research hours are available at the reasonable rate of just $125 per hour. You will also get access to Muniscope’s Select Library Searches and RSS feeds, a service designed to help you focus in on a specific area of interest and stay abreast of the library’s new acquisitions as they arrive.
Public libraries and Universities are provided with complimentary access to the library service; however, interlibrary loan charges may be billed for all document dissemination, whether by mail or fax.
