The Department of Library and Information Studies is pleased to announce the induction of eight new members into the local chapter of the library and information studies honor society, Beta Phi Mu.
Founded in 1948, Beta Phi Mu recognizes and encourages scholastic achievement among library and information studies students. The name of the society derives from the initials of the Greek words Bibliothekarios philax mathesis, meaning “librarians are the guardians of knowledge.” The society’s motto, Aliis inserviendo consumor, means “Consumed in the service of others.” Over 35,000 graduates of accredited library and information studies programs in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom have been initiated into Beta Phi Mu. Our latest inductees, selected from the pool of recent graduates on the basis of high academic achievement and a faculty assessment of their professional leadership potential, were invited to attend a ceremony and reception on October
Congratulations to new Beta Phi Mu members: Tracy N. Dunstan, Sarah S. Easton, Andrea L. Fetterly, Allison M. Fischer, Eileen Bauer Gardner, Christina M. Karvounis, Amanda F. McCormick, and Kimberly J. Whittemore.
