It will definitely be well worth your time to stop by the 4th floor lounge at the iSchool between 4pm-5:30pm on Tuesday, September 16. Representatives from the following iSchool student chapters will be there to share information about membership, benefits and activities:
SLA - Special Libraries Association (join SLA and register for raffle of a special gift!)
ALA - American Library Association (If you cannot attend the Thursday, Sept 11 ALA coffee, come to this session)
ARLIS - Art Libraries Society of North America
ASIS&T - American Society for Information Science & Technology
SAM - Student Archivists at Maryland
Stop by for some refreshments after or before class and find out how these associations can help you connect with professionals in the field, learn about opportunities in a variety of libraries and information settings, and participate in additional educational opportunites.
Belonging to a professional association as a student is not only a tremendous bargain but a critical part of career development.
Hope to see you there!!
