Volunteer opportunity for LIS students…..


The Missouri Masonic Research Library is just opening and would be interested in having LIS students as volunteers. Because the library is still new, there are many opportunities here for you.


SISLT & COE New Student Orientation: Please RSVP!


As we prepare for the SISLT Orientation, we would like to know who plans to attend. If you do plan to attend, please RSVP using this quick online survey. This RSVP is just for the SISLT Orientation, not for the COE Orientation, so please re-RSVP so we know whom to expect in the afternoon. New and returning students are welcome!
