MLIS College Fair

On Saturday, June 13, 2015, the Metro Atlanta Library Association (MALA) and GLA New Members’ Round Table (NMRT) co-hosted a MLIS programs college fair on the campus of Oglethorpe University in Atlanta.   

SLA Georgia was invited to participate to promote the association and offer a perspective on job prospects in the industry.  Nancy Snell, current Past President of the Georgia SLA chapter,  represented the chapter.  

About forty prospective library and archival science master’s students attended and were able to interact with representatives from the Master of Archival Studies Program at Clayton State University and MLIS programs at Valdosta State University, University of South Carolina, University of North Texas and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.  The University of Kentucky and Florida State University were unable to attend but sent program and admission materials. 

MALA and NMRT plans to make this an annual event with schools and industry associations.
