Welcome to SILSSA!

SILSSA is the Student Association for the Pratt School of Information community, as well as the Student branch of the ALA for Pratt– If you’re an enrolled student at the School of Information, you’re already a member of SILSSA!


Here’s a quick overview of what we’ve got coming up:


We are hosting a town hall meeting about the recent changes at Pratt SI, and the role of students, alumni and our school in the future of LIS education. We want to hear from you, so please let us know when is a good time for us to host this event, or leave your comments directly via our anonymous feedback form.
NYPL will be on campus Thursday, October 22 to interview for Librarian positions (Children Librarian, Young Adult and Adult Librarian positions to start immediately). An information table will be set up in the Lobby of the 6th Floor (Pratt Manhattan) from 2:30 pm -7:00 pm and interviews will take place on the spot for those who qualify.  Staff from NYPL Human Resources will answer any of your questions and accept resumes for other positions at NYPL, but they will only interview for Librarian positions.
Saturday, October 24th is the Librarians@Pratt Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm in PMC Room 609. There will be a new editor workshop from 1-2, and open editing with sources and snacks from 2-6. Sign up at: bit.ly/Wikiform
