So what’s this blog about exactly?
Good question. This is the official blog of the Oklahoma Library and Information Studies Student Association (OLISSA). It is intended to serve as an open forum for students enrolled in the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) at the University of Oklahoma to communicate with OLISSA officers and with each other. This blog will be routinely updated with information about SLIS, OLISSA, and other items of relevance.

Commenting on posts is strongly encouraged. To do you, you must either sign in with your existing WordPress account or sign up for a new one. If you sign up for a new account, you will be emailed a link to activate your account. Once activated, you may comment to your heart’s content.

A note of caution: the content of this blog will be visible to all comers (e.g. fellow students, SLIS faculty, OU administration, potential employers) so please comment accordingly. The blog moderator reserves the right to remove content deemed inappropriate.
