The Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) is the oldest scholarly society in North America dedicated to the study of books and manuscripts as physical objects. It was organized in 1904 and incorporated in 1927 with the principal objectives of promoting bibliographical research and issuing bibliographical publications. These objectives have been and continue to be accomplished through a broad array of activities, including meetings, lectures, and fellowship programs, as well as the publishing of books and The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America (PBSA), North America's leading bibliographical journal. Membership in the Society is open to all those interested in bibliographical problems and projects, and its membership includes bibliographers, librarians, professors, students, booksellers, and collectors worldwide.

Membership benefits include an annual subscription to PBSA in print and ebook formats, electronic access to the full archive of the journal via our publisher's website, the University of Chicago Press, a 30% discount on books published by the University of Chicago press, and access to members-only fellowship opportunities.
