Alumni & Friends


We are proud to have an engaged and vibrant alumni community. The powerful relationships forged between faculty and students, and among classmates, thrive long beyond graduation day. Our alumni share ideas, professional opportunities, and graciously offer their time to mentor current GSLIS students.

Many of our alumni stay connected with our School and their classmates through active involvement in two professional organizations: the Library School Alumni Association (LSAA) and Beta Phi Mu. LSAA encourages participation in alumni events and promotes a lifelong connection with our School. Beta Phi Mu is an honor society that recognizes scholastic achievement and offers social and professional programming for its members.

Alumni Profile

March 28, 2016

It’s no surprise that a digital learning librarian doesn’t work within the boundaries of a physical library. In this role at Latin School of Chicago, William Langston isn’t even confined to the walls of the school building. In addition to working with students and faculty in person and virtually, Langston leads field trips, collaborates with Chicago-area colleges, and supports external research initiatives with ties to Chicago’s historic Old Town neighborhood.
