The American Library Association Student Chapter (ALAsc) at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, Library and Information Science Program is excited to promote involvement in all forms of librarianship beyond the classroom as well as creating an environment for the exchange of ideas about trends, issues and opportunities in the profession. We support all forms of librarianship and encourage membership from all students in the LIS program.
Our student chapter was founded on February 4, 1992, the 34th official group formed. We are one of over 60 ALA student chapters across the United States and Canada, and the only one located in Hawai‘i.
