What is LISSA?

LISSA stands for the Library and Information Science Student Association.  LISSA is an official student chapter of the American Library Association and includes all students in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.

ANY student of Dominican’s GSLIS program is free to attend LISSA’s board and committee meetings. Board meetings are held once a month in the Butler Children’s Literature Center (Crown Library room 214).

LISSA’s Mission

LISSA seeks to enhance the Dominican University Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) students’ education by building community, providing opportunities for professional development, and giving voice to the GSLIS student body.

How Can You Get Involved?

Network with your peers by attending events, meetings, and tours.
LISSA board and committee meetings are open to EVERYONE. For meeting dates see our calendar or follow us on Facebook or Twitter. LISSA also arranges several tours to various libraries in the Chicago area over the course of the semester.

Gain profession experience by joining committees, collaborating on projects, and participating in workshops.
Joining a committee is a great way to get practical experience, or even to accomplish a project for your eportfolio. Committees are small groups dedicated to accomplishing specific tasks, such as making podcasts, handling marketing and social media, or even arranging social events for GSLIS students.

Make your voice heard.
Ultimately, LISSA is here to serve YOU, the GSLIS student body. If you would like to start a project or see something changed, there are several ways you can make your ideas known!
