Join SOLIS. It's easy to become a member using Bullsync! You may register as a member of the American Library Association (ALA) and/or as a member of the Special Libraries Assocation (SLA). Please note that this will not grant you membership in the national organizations.
Come to a SOLIS event. Check our calendar or Facebook page for upcoming events! Events include fun activities, such as touring the Tampa Theatre or the Dali Museum, as well as hands-on experiences from professionals in the field. Many events are available online so don't let distance stop you from getting to know your peers.
Write a blog post. Have a great library experience to share? Or, maybe you just had a brilliant revelation while researching your latest paper. Write it up! Get your ideas out there and build your portfolio at the same time. Blog posts are open to all SOLIS members so send your articles or ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Communications Committee" in the subject line.
Become an Officer: Elections are held each fall and spring. Timely announcements are posted to the SOLIS listserv, as well as on our Facebook page and Twitter feeds. All SOLIS members are welcome to run for offices, even newbies. The friendships formed and experience gained are well-worth the extra time!
