Presentations & Publications
LISTSERVs are applications that distribute messages to subscribers who register for an electronic mailing list. There are a variety of these mailing lists that cater to everything from archives to public libraries and everything in between. They also frequently include calls for papers and presentations. Here are a few to join to keep up-to-date with LIS news.

The Forum for Information Professionals (FIP) is a one-day conference in February of each year.
All students of SLIS, online or on campus, are eligible to present their work at this conference.
Online students can participate by viewing the sessions as they are streamed live, or by submitting to present a pre-recorded session.
Presentations are also archived through ERA and act as valuable resources for information or making some contacts. Visit the FIP site to learn more.
Pathfinder is a new journal started by students at SLIS. The journal's mandate is to publish the research of students and emerging professionals. The website is currently under development and awaiting first publication, but you can still check it out!
