Annual Activities

Chi Chapter sponsors the following activities annually:

Career Exploration Forum for Indiana University School of Library and Information Science Students
In 2001, Chi Chapter restructured the Career Forum to emphasize negotiating a job offer. Originally, this event was designed to give students the opportunity to meet and hear from practitioners with various specialties and from a variety of institutions within the state of Indiana. It is scheduled in the Fall prior to the date for Spring course registration in order to help students design their course work with information about specific careers in mind. In the past, student and state chapters of various library associations cosponsored the forum. A panel of librarians gave presentations on careers in academic libraries, special libraries, school libraries, public libraries, information brokerage, and information science. Break-out sessions followed, with students able to talk to the panelists and other professionals who attended from around the state. For information on the next forum, please contact the individual listed at the bottom of this page.

Initiation and Awards Ceremony
Chi Chapter inducts new members at an annual event that traditionally coincides with the Indiana Library Federation Conference in the Spring. Formal presentations of both the Service Award and Scholarship Award are made at this event.
