The IS Library collects digital portfolios which we encourage students to submit after graduating. Please fill out the form at this link to submit.

You can check out past portfolios in this Google Drive folder. Viewable in the Library, there is also a small collection of physical, bound portfolios, spanning 2015 to 2018. 

Dr. Miriam Posner also has a helpful breakdown of common questions students have about the program and the portfolio process on her blog. Just remember not all advisors have the same policies, so please check in with them regarding their own specific scheduling and types of support. The student handbook also remains a valuable resource for information about the portfolio and the program, more generally.

IS Media Preservation Lab

The IS Media Preservation Lab offers workshops throughout each quarter. We also have a few videos on our YouTube channel that provide specific types of tutorials for media archiving courses taught in the department. To read more about the Lab and the Center for Preservation of Audiovisual Heritage see our IS Media Preservation Lab page.

Course Reserves

The IS Library tries to provide up to date resources for MLIS coursework. We have a small but growing collection of books and articles that are cited in current and past IS syllabi. We encourage students to visit the Library to explore these resources. While, currently, with the exception of our Children’s Collection, our books are noncirculating, we do have a copier and (free) scanners available for student use. Also, if you cannot find a book through any other campus library that is integral to your studies, please contact us.

Student Organizations

IS student organizations communicate through Slack and Discord. You can reach out to SGB to get added to either channel. Never used Slack or Discord before? We can help you! Come in during our hours for support, or check out these tutorials: How to Use Slack (watch time 1 minute 15 second) or How to Use Slack (watch time 3 minutes 41 seconds).
