Student Services and Resources


SLIS uses the university listserv software to communicate regularly with current students and alumni. The listserv policy outlines the available listservs and related policies.

SLIS email list managers will add students to the appropriate list with their USC email account upon beginning their program. Students are removed from the listserv upon graduation. Recent graduates are encouraged to subscribe to the SLISALUM list. 

Another important list is the list. All job announcements sent to the SLIS are posted here.
