SLIS has a number of student chapters of professional associations. These groups provide you an opportunity to learn about the profession. Through these associations you will learn about job placement tools, listservs, conferences, publications, continuing education, and more.
Remember to meet with your SLIS faculty advisor. (Each SLIS student is assigned a faculty advisor at the point of admissions to the School.) Advisors can offer guidance about your professional career. Rhonda Spencer, SLIS Director of Admissions and Placement, is also available to review résumés and to answer questions.
