A Message from Our 20th Anniversary Chair

Thank you for supporting Spectrum, a program that has provided over 1,000  students with a $6,500 scholarship and personalized support to help them succeed in the library and information science profession. I invite you to renew your commitment by making a gift today to Spectrum and join us in growing our Spectrum community by encouraging individuals to apply or become a supporter today.

This amazing program does so much more than provide monetary support for students in LIS programs– it connects people with an amazingly diverse group of professionals that have a stake in their success, and often creates friendships and mentoring relationships that last a lifetime.The connections I made through Spectrum have had tremendous impact on me personally and professionally. 

Please join me celebrating our donors and thanking them for the gift of their time, mentoring and fiancial support!
