In January 2017, free two-year ALSC/ALA memberships were granted to 100 students. These memberships were made possible through funds from the Friends of ALSC. The objective of this pilot program is to encourage and support new professionals in their ALSC membership and engagement and to begin networking, taking advantage of professional development, and career support. Below is a post written by student gift recipient, Angela Bair, on her journey thus far with ALSC.
ALSC is pleased to announce a new program to offer a free, two-year membership for current and recent graduates of ALA-accredited Master of Library Science/Master of Library and Information Science (MLS/MLIS) programs.
