Please join us!

The student chapter of Special Libraries Association and American Society for Information Science & Technology (SLA-ASIS&T) will be holding our first Fall semester meeting in the LIS diner Tuesday, September 10 from 4:00-4:30pm.

Current or prospective members are welcome; we would love to meet with all of you whether you're an old or new student in the LIS program here at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa!

This is an opportunity to be informed of what benefits being a member provides, and the chance to make your own suggestions (e.g. what special libraries you might want to tour this semester). It is an informal meeting where we can get to know each other and eat treats!

Remember, the fee to be a member is only $7 for the whole time you are a student here at UHM. So if you would like to join, please be prepared with cash, money order or check.

Thank you!
