Current Activities

First Annual Book Drive

The Palmer School's ASIS&T Student Chapter invites you to join us on donating your used books. We will make these textbooks available for nominal fees at the end and beginning of every semester to our students. Not only will you be lending a hand to our program colleagues, revenue generated by will be used by the chapter to reinvest in student activities. We'll hold onto the books and offer at the beginning and ends of semesters a chance for current students to purchase these books for $10 to $20.

We highly recommend your donating books ONLY after you have passed your comprehensives

Here's how it works: bring your used titles to the colloquium, or arrange another drop off by contacting Nancy Marksbury (nancy.marksbury@liu.edu) OR Donna Hope (hoped@ncc.edu).

What will YOU get out of it? As a student chapter, we cannot issue you a receipt tax-deductible donation. However, the kismet and good karma generated by paying it forward we're sure will return to you! Monies received by the chapter will fund activities, snacks, and other student-centric initiatives as directed by the student chapter.

Thank you for helping us create a generative and thriving student body. Feel free to contact any one of us off list if you have questions.

You can also bring other used textbooks; you never know who might need a textbook badly and will be grateful when they can find the book they're looking for!!!

Upcoming Events

Final Colloquium of Spring Semester!

We will be co-sponsoring this event!

Palmer School of Library and Information Science Colloquium March 29, 2011

“Proflections in Cyberspace: A New Kind of Information -- Implications for Individuals, Institutions, and Information Professionals"

Gary Marchionini

University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

You are cordially invited to attend the final Palmer School Colloquium of the academic year on Tuesday, March 29, 2011. The speaker is Gary Marchionini from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.


More of our time is spent online in a virtual space that is often called cyberspace. Our actions -- and the enormous variety of consequent actions taken by other people and machines related to our actions -- lead to the accrual of dynamic traces of our existence. These traces of our personal identity in cyberspace can be called “proflections of self.” This lecture will define cyberspace and proflection of self and discuss implications for individuals, institutions, and information professionals.

The details of the Palmer School Colloquium are as follows:
