SLIS has a large number of student organizations, many of which are connected to the national professional organizations and their local chapters.
Students are often able to join the national associations at special rates, enabling them to gain exposure to every aspect of the profession. By attending meetings, helping with events, and becoming involved, SLIS students have great networking opportunities.
Many national and international professional organizations have local chapters that hold events and meetings year-round and are a great way to get involved in the rich library and information science community. We have brought together a list of the major groups below:
