Alumni News: October 2011

Numerous SLIS alumni attended the “100th and 30th Anniversaries at SLIS” event at Catholic University on October 20th, which drew around 65 attendees.  The event celebrated the 100th anniversary of library science education at the university, and the 30th anniversary of SLIS as a School.  The celebration offered a Library Luminaries Panel which discussed “The Future of Libraries in the 21st Century,” and featured Anne Caputo, 2010 President of the Special Libraries Association (SLA); Susan Hildreth, Director of the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS); and Maureen Sullivan, 2012-13 President of the American Library Association (ALA).  A video of the panel is available online:
