All students registered in the M.L.S. degree program are members of the Association of Graduate Library and Information Science Students, which each year elects officers and sends representatives to the Graduate Student Association of The Catholic University of America. AGLISS invites speakers to the campus and schedules social events during the school year.
There are active student chapters of the Special Libraries Association and the American Society for Information Science and Technology. Students also participate in the activities of other area professional associations, including the Law Librarians Society of Washington, D.C., and the Catholic Library Association.
There are the three student associations for Library and Information Science students:
CUA Student chapter of SLA, Special Libraries Association
CUA Student chapter of ASIS&T, American Society for Information Science and Technology
In addition to these organizations, all LIS students are automatically members of the Graduate Student Association at Catholic University.
