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:
- Informatics: email email@example.com; view archives here
- MLIS: you will be automatically added to this mandatory mailing list before the first day of class; if you are not on it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org; view MLIS archives here and MLIS Chat archives here (archives only accessible to UW MLIS students)
