About the UPLSAA

Welcome to the website of the U.P. Library Science Alumni Association!

This serves to provide a convenient networking point for the U.P. Library Science Alumni community, highlighting the various projects, alumni news and events organized by the association and U.P. School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS).

It is our hope that through these activities, our UP SLIS alumni will continue to keep in touch with their friends, the School and the University.

Looking forward, we would like to hear more from you, our alumni, about your interesting stories as you write each chapter of your life after graduation.

We also welcome dedicated individuals to join the UPLSAA Volunteer Corps as members or form interest groups to help developing and promoting SLIS and our profession.

With more talented alumni members, we can look forward to more interaction, teamwork and joint activities between the UPLSAA, library science student clubs and professional organization.

We wish you every success in your career and future endeavors. We hope to see you in one of our future alumni events.
