Welcome to 2009!

Aloha LIS Students!

I hope you all had a fabulous Winter Break! With the Break and the start of a new semester, I imagine everyone is really busy. Therefore, this blog will be (relatively) short! :-)

Couple of quick announcements:

1. The Graduate Student Organization just issued the formal call for candidates for the new Chair of GSO. The term would occur during the 2009-2010 academic year. If you are interested in submitting your name and running for the position, contact Keith Sakuda at In addition, GSO is looking for individuals to fill several vacant positions, such as the Newsletter, Ombuds, and Campus/Events Chairs. Again, if you are interested in learning more, or submitting your name for election, please contact Keith Sakuda at the aforementioned e-mail.

2. LIS needs another Graduate Student Organization Representative! Beginning in January 2009, we are down to one GSO Rep and you folks deserve two! The GSO Representative position is a great experience that offers many opportunities to contribute to student government, and a chance to advocate for your fellow LIS students. Don't think you have enough time? No worries -- the time commitment is minimal, and you can share duties with another representative!

If you'd like to learn more, please contact Rebecca Marrall at If you are interested in submitting your name for the vacant position, please contact Dr. Andrew Wertheimer at

Mahalo, and good luck on the new semester!
Rebecca Marrall
