The ALA-SC is the Indiana University student chapter of the American Library Association. In addition to providing a link to this professional organization, we strive to provide the students in the Department of Information and Library Science (ILS) at Indiana University with a variety of beneficial activities. We have two main goals: to promote a sense of community within our organization and ILS itself, and to support the professional goals of our members.
We try to promote a sense of community by reaching out to as many of the incoming students as possible and encouraging returning students to continue to participate in our organization. To this end, at the beginning of each semester we have a popular Meet N' Greet, where ILS students have the opportunity to mingle and learn about the ALA-SC. We also provide a variety of social activities, such as hikes, movie nights, bowling, etc.
