The Department of Library and Information Science Alumni Association works to enable graduates and former students of SLIS/LIS to maintain affiliation with the Department; to raise funds to supplement the funds of the Department; to encourage and support the continuing education of its members; to assist current students in pursuing career objectives; and to recognize outstanding alumni and faculty. You are automatically a member of the LIS Alumni Association if you have graduated from SLIS/LIS or have attended SLIS/LIS for a semester or more.
