    Well you were correct but I had to confirm firsthand as I needed to know for sure. Here are the two email messages I received from Jim Bowman: From: Jim Bowman

      Hi Xenia,

      I've just been notified that I was in error in my last message with regard
      to corporate memberships. They're termed "Institution Memberships". They
      permit up to 4 individuals to have access to the Library & Archives
      collections (but not the exhibition floors) for one year. The names of the
      individuals must be stated in the application form.

      Yours sincerely,

      Hi Xenia,

      Yes, since June there has been an admission fee of $11.00 ($8.50 for
      seniors) to visit the Library and Archives. Exemptions are granted to
      first-time visitors; all students; donors of library and archival materials
      wishing to view the materials they donated; First Nations persons (courtesy
      of a grant from Shell Canada); and Glenbow members.

      For people who visit to do research more often than 4 times a year, it is
      economical to purchase a Glenbow membership for $50.00 ($35.00 for seniors;
      $100.00 for corporate bodies). It would be possible for an incorporated
      organization such as the Alberta Family Histories Society to purchase a
      corporate membership for $100.00. The Society would then be issued a
      membership card which could be shared by the membership.

      There seems to be an organized campaign by members of the AFHS to send
      emails of protest. That's fine by me. The admission fee is for a one-year
      trial period and will be re-evaluated by our Senior Management. Although
      your inquiry is not really a protest, I'll pass it on, as well.

      Yours sincerely,

      Hi Jim,

      Is the Glenbow now charging to go to the Library? There seems to be some
      confusion about this among the genealogy community in Calgary. I had always
      just said at the desk I was going to the library and was not made to pay -
      only if I went to see the collection/displays?

      à bientôt,

      Xenia Stanford (president@...)
