Alumni & Friends

SILS Alumni Association


The School of Information and Library Science (SILS) Alumni Association (SILSAA) seeks to foster positive and productive relationships among SILS, its alumni and current students. SILSAA hopes to provide opportunities for alumni to "give back" to current SILS students, maintain contact with SILS classmates, develop new contacts within the library and information professions, and recognize distinguished achievement within the SILS family.

To these ends, each year SILSAA: sponsors a reception to welcome new SILS students; presents book scholarships, research awards, and the Student Service Award to current SILS students; presents Distinguished Alumni Awards; hosts receptions at the December and May graduation ceremonies; sponsors a Mentoring Day celebration; and maintains a listserv for SILS alumni.
