Student Organizations of Library and Information Science (SOLIS) Policies and Procedures Wiki

The Student Organizations of Library and Information Science (SOLIS) at the University of South Florida (USF) comprises two separate student chapters of the American Libraries Association (ALA) and the Special Libraries Association (SLA).

Originally, the student chapters of these groups worked individually. Currently, the two groups still maintain separate contact with their respective parent organizations for financial support. However, in 2003, the student groups of ALA and SLA, along with the then-active student chapter of ASIS&T, began to work together as one larger organization because of common goals and the benefit of pooled resources for larger events and fundraisers. It is the goal for the two organizations to recruit enough members that the groups can work separately in the future on smaller events more tailored to the separate goals of their parent organizations.
