End-of-the-Semester Round-Up!

Hi there Pratt SI students and wider community,

As the semester is winding down, I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for your great ideas, support, participation and feedback over the past few months!
I also wanted to give you the head’s up on a few ways you can be involved with SILSSA and Pratt SI over the break, and into the Spring semester:

Join us at ALA-MW!

We are offering eight scholarships of $120 for registration to the ALA Midwinter Conference, being held from January 8-12, 2016.

The conference is being held in Boston this year, so it’s an easy and fun way to get involved in the field, see what ALA is all about, and meet other library professionals.  Check out all the great events they’re offering on the official ALA Midwinter site.

This scholarship is opened to current students (including those who will graduate in December) who are registered members of ALA. Interested? Just write to us with a brief statement explaining why you’d like to attend ALA Midwinter!

Fill out an application at: http://bit.ly/mid2016 by December 5th. Winners will be announced December 8th.

Give Feedback on the School’s Mission, Vision & Goals

December 3, 2015, is the last day to provide feedback on the draft revision to the School’s Mission, Vision and Goals.  You can provide feedback at: http://feedback.prattinfoschool.nyc

Fill out the ASIS&T Student Survey

Pratt ASIS&T would like to learn about your experiences at Pratt SI this past fall.

The results of this survey will be shared with SILSSA and faculty, and is a great way to let us know how your semester went. All answers will be kept completely anonymous.

This survey will be open through to the end of January. Please encourage your fellow Pratt SI students to fill it out for us.

Review the notes and Storify from our Town Hall Meeting

SILSSA held a Town Hall Meeting with Pratt SI students, administration, faculty and alumni on November 14th, to discuss the recent name change at our school, and the role of students and alumni in strategic planning going forward.
Thank you to all those who attended,  raised their concerns, and generally provided support for this important meeting. You can review the notes and storify for the meeting here:
