LLOPS is hosting a table at the iSchool Career Fair on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 from 12:30-4:30PM. This event is a great opportunity for companies and organizations to discuss career opportunities, job openings, internships and fieldwork with outstanding students in the information field who are potential interns and part- or full-time employees in your organization. The fair is open to iSchool students and others across campus who are seeking jobs and internships in the information science field. Last year the fair saw over 700 students in attendance. This is an ideal venue for employers interested in hiring for a wide range of information technology, information science, and library science roles.
If you are interested in attending to search for a candidate for your organization or to promote iSchool student awareness of LLOPS and the law librarianship profession, please contact LLOPS iSchool Liaison, Richard Jost.

Heard about ALA? Big name change just revealed – we’re now members of LawVantage! What else is new in ALA and the legal industry? Let’s have a drink and talk about that.
Attendance is complimentary to all PSALA Members, Business Partners, and guests. Please visit our website, psala.org for additional information and to register (so we can be sure to have enough adult beverages!), but feel free to just show up if spontaneous works best for you!
