Abstract

This fall will mark the 50th anniversary of the graduate program in library science at the University of Southern Mississippi. SLIS will be commemorating the occasion with a number of events, bringing together past and present faculty as well as alumni. The event will be of interest to countless library and archives professionals across the southeastern United States since The University of Southern Mississippi’s library science program is the only fully ALAaccredited program in the state, and one of just a few nationally‐recognized library programs in The South.
