Welcome to MISSA, the McGill Information Studies Student Association!


The mandate of the McGill Information Studies Student Association (MISSA) is:

"To co-ordinate the activities of the students of the McGill School of Information Studies and to ensure representation of student interests in the school, in the university, and in the library and information profession."

We are here to represent your interests and help you enjoy your time as a SIS student.

Keep an eye out for your representatives around the school and feel free to approach us with questions, ideas, and any concerns you may have.

MISSA holds elections every fall and spring for positions specific to MLIS/MISt I, II, and PhDs. When the elections come around, don't be shy. Let yourself be heard by running for a position on the council!


Beyond the Shelf Blog

Come have a look at Beyond the Shelf, our SIS student blog. Contributors are always welcome.


The Marginal

The Marginal is the former e-zine published bi-annually by MISSA. It gives a great historical snapshot of what SIS/GLIS students were talking about & accomplishing in former years. The Marginal e-zine replaced the print version of The Marginal, also known previously as the Marginal Librarian.
