The Association of Library and Information Science Students (ALISS) is the official student organization for Master of Library and Information Science students at the University of Washington Information School. All students admitted to the program are members. We hold quarterly open meetings for MLIS students to discuss concerns and give feedback about the iSchool and serve as a channel of communication between students and the faculty and administration. ALISS sponsors many events, such as the spring and fall book sales, social gatherings, and opportunities for professional development and networking. We also work with iSchool student organizations to sponsor events during iWelcome Week and through the academic year.
