In this morning's FIS Alumni News Update, there was an invitation from the Faculty of Information Studies Alumni Association (FISAA) at the University of Toronto for alumni to attend a reception to welcome students. FIS is increasingly connecting with alumni and employers to make the programme relevant to the real world. I have found attending events such as this one to both benefit the students and to energize me with regard to the future of librarianship. If you are a FIS alumnus, I encourage you to attend. If you aren't, I equally encourage you to check out what your own alma mater is doing.
If you are interested in welcoming a new class of FIS students to the Faculty of Information Studies on Thursday, September 8th, at 7 p.m., contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details and to RSVP.
