Alumni & Friends


We are proud to have an engaged and vibrant alumni community. The powerful relationships forged between faculty and students, and among classmates, thrive long beyond graduation day. Our alumni share ideas, professional opportunities, and graciously offer their time to mentor current iSchool students.

Many of our alumni stay connected with our School and their classmates through active involvement in two professional organizations: the Library School Alumni Association (LSAA) and Beta Phi Mu. LSAA encourages participation in alumni events and promotes a lifelong connection with our School. Beta Phi Mu is an honor society that recognizes scholastic achievement and offers social and professional programming for its members.

The Office of Advancement is proud to serve the needs of our School's alumni. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
