That's right, you.

Strictly speaking, without you, LISSO doesn't exist. You make it happen every year. Comps review and breakfast, social outings, professional development seminars. It's all funded by you.

All we ask is that you contribute an annual $5 which goes directly to the programs that we fund.

It's all on the honor system. We trust that you will make the right decision. It's just like the copier in the CAIT lab. Now raise your hands those of you who have an outstanding balance there. Right. Not many. But now raise your hands those of you who have not paid your LISSO dues. Mmm hmm.

Any one of the LISSO officers will gladly accept your check or cash or they can be given (or mailed) to Lousetta (Attn: Lousetta Carlson/LISSO dues). Checks ought to be made out to "Library and Information Science Student Organization."

We offer both our and your peers, sincerest thanks.
