Becoming a part of the professional community is an important aspect of professional education. Students at the Information School are fortunate to have a number of quality professional organizations with student chapters and student membership. We encourage our students to become active in at least one of these organizations and join your respective listservs to ensure that you see communication from the student organizations.
If you are a current iSchool student, faculty, or staff member wanting to join an academic listserv or be removed from one, please email Student Services:

- MLIS: email firstname.lastname@example.org and specify MLIS and/or MLIS Chat listserv; view MLIS archives here and MLIS Chat archives here
