While browsing the SILS Web site lately, you may have come across some new additions. Several enhancements have been made to increase the School's Web presence, as well as to feature some of the exciting things SILS alumni are accomplishing in the working world. Included in these changes are an addition to the "People" section called "Alumni Profiles," as well as an organizational restructuring of the "Giving to SILS" portion of the site.
The newly added alumni profiles highlight alumni of the School's BSIS, MSIS, MSLS and Ph.D. programs - exploring the many intriguing careers SILS graduates go on to pursue after completing their degrees. These jobs include: software engineer, FBI analyst, tenure-track professor, academic librarian, public librarian and Wall Street Journal information architect - just to name a few. In addition to these new profiles, the Web site includes a featured SILS alum in the "Alumni & Friends" section. The featured alum, who this month is Eric Obershaw, is selected by the SILS Alumni Association Board.
The newly restructured "Giving to SILS" portion of the Web site provides a more dynamic, comprehensive mechanism to help visitors understand the options they have to support the School. In order to streamline and secure the giving process for alumni and friends, a new giving portal and "Giving FAQ" section have been created. In addition to these changes, the navigation features of "Giving to SILS" have been restructured to highlight former, current and future donors, as well as to make the giving process easier.
New information is added daily to the SILS Web site in the "SILS News" and "SILS Events" sections. Visit the site often to learn more about the happenings of the School. Be sure to check out the links to the social media applications (which are all SILS specific) located in the lower, middle section of the front page of the site.
