Hello LIS students!

What on earth is ALISS? In a nutshell, weíre the official student organization for the LIS day, evening, and distance programs. We hold open meetings, usually about two per quarter, for sharing ideas, concerns, and feedback about the iSchool, and we serve as a channel for communication between students, faculty, and the administration. We also sponsor speakers and panel discussions, and events such as the Spring Fling and the annual ALISS Book Sale.

ALISS will hold an open meeting on Tuesday, December 7, at 3:30 in the iSalon. All LIS students are welcome! If you canít make it, donít worry.

Why Open Meetings? Traditionally, open meetings are your way of sharing your experiences, discoveries and concerns with respect to the program. We then meet with the administration and let them know what you said.

Getting Involved: The Book Sale

Our annual book sale is coming up soon, and we need your help! The book sale will be held on February 16th and 17th in By George. This is a good opportunity for LIS students to get involved. The book sale provides the funds for the Spring Fling, our year-end celebration, as well as for other events. There are a variety of Portfolio-worthy volunteer/leadership opportunities:

  • Online Book Sale Coordinator
  • Publicity Coordinator
  • Staffing Coordinator
  • Donations Coordinator

If you are interested in one of these positions, contact Blair Austin, ALISS Secretary. More announcements will follow.
