  1. I’m interested in joining, but I don’t see the option to select “New Graduate” in the database.

  2. Hi Amanda,

    Because new graduates receive a free membership for the first year, you will need to submit your membership using the form that is available at https://ualibraryschoolassociation.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/joinlsaform4.pdf. Simply complete the form and return it to SLIS.

    I hope this helps. Thanks!
