Welcome to the May 2011 SLIS Descriptor!

Dear fellow students,

As another academic semester comes to a close, I am honored to begin a new chapter of my SLIS experience as editor of the SLIS Descriptor.  I am eager to share the range of experience represented by our diverse student body, and I welcome your ideas and input.  I also want to thank our outgoing editor, Joni Savage, for her hard work and dedication in the last year, and for working with me to bring you the May issue of ALASC’s newsletter.

Lastly, please visit the SLIS Networks page to find connections in your geographic area.  If there is no group in your region, start your own and email the editor to have it included.
