GSLIS student are invited to attend a viewing up this fascinating webcast!

Attending Association conferences is one of the most valuable experiences that you can have while in library school (and beyond). Come check out this informal panel of students who have attended past ALA conferences and hear about the amazing experiences they’ve had and what you can expect as a GSLIS student when you attend ALA Annual or Midwinter conferences.

ALA-SC is continuing to sponsor this fantastic lecture series that highlights “the good, the bad, and the pretty cool parts” of librarianship by inviting you to hear from real librarians working in various aspects of the profession. Those of you who attended the first lecture know the value of this experience and since the events are highly informal, feel free to drop in to listen as you can.
We are always seeking Project Managers, GSLIS students who want to launch an advocacy campaign, lead a book club discussion or event, organize a fundraiser, or pursue an original idea. If you’re intrigued by this opportunity, please contact our Projects Coordinator, Anna Sarneso, at Sarneso [at] gmail [dot] com.
