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.

The company culture at Spotify is just one of the reasons knowledge manager Colleen McClowry loves working there. She encourages students to seek out job opportunities that align with their own personal interests, whether it be music or any other passion.
Where do you work and what is your role?
I work at Spotify as a knowledge manager for their analytics department. I'm helping to design, build, and manage a knowledge base that collects and organizes internal research papers, A/B test analyses, and other key insights and reports from across the business. I was previously in a similar role at Adobe.
