Student Organizations


The American Library Association (ALA) Student Chapter

The American Library Association (ALA) Student Chapter at Kent State aims to connect and involve the iSchool’s library and information science students with ALA and its affiliate organizations. The Student Chapter hosts events, meetings, and programs throughout the semester to provide networking, professional development, and community service opportunities to current iSchool graduate students both virtually and in-person. Membership in the student chapter is free, though professional membership in ALA is always encouraged. To learn more, visit their website.
