Listen up SLIS folks…

Please go to our Facebook page to vote in the poll for which logo we should use for the poster.  SLIS 506 plans on making a poster for the UL and SLIS conference, which is to be held on March 22 at the University Library.  The poster will help make others aware of how all SLIS classes will be online only starting in the Fall.  Many of us don’t want this or are not happy with this decision, so the Introduction to Research class wants to make a poster indicating our unhappiness.  We want people to talk about this decision and as a result, we are trying to decide which logo to use to make people aware of this decision.  Please participate in the poll on Facebook to help the class decide which logo will be best to invite discussion.

For more information on the conference, check out our Facebook page and the website.

Thank you for taking our poll!

Networking Oppotunity that You Don’t Want to Miss Out On!

Hi everyone,

Do you want to meet some local librarians and library students?  Then this is the opportunity for you!

I’d like to spread the word about an Indy librarian tweet-up.  Now you are probably wondering…what is is a tweet-up?  It is an opportunity for those to follow each other on Twitter to actually meet in person.

Do you have to be on twitter to join in this tweet-up?  No you do not.  You don’t have to be on Twitter to go to this event and it would be a great networking opportunity for students to meet Indianapolis area librarians and library students.

When is it?  It will be on February 23, from 1-4 p.m at 3 Wise Men Brewery in Broad Ripple.

If you are interested in going, then go to this link to RSVP:  http://twtvite.com/indylibtwtup3

Hope to see you there!!
