Resources

Information and Links

One of the main functions of LISSA, apart from advocating for the needs of students, is connecting students with important resources and information. The following pages offer information on some of the major aspects of the MLIS degree. 

As always, your main source of information should be your email, the U of A web page, Beartracks, and the SLIS web site. For the most part, these are kept up to date. 

The sections below can also be retrieved by the navigation bar at the top of every page.
