The Graduates of GSLIS

Over the past seventy-six years, from the time the School's sessional program began, GSLIS has seen over 3400 students graduate with degrees in library and information studies. Over 600 graduated with a Bachelor of Library Science (BLS), over 1700 with a Master of Library Science (MLS), and over 1100 with a Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS).

While the doctoral program is still quite young, there have been seven graduates thus far and many more to come in the future.

Many of our graduates have gone on to prominent positions in their field; all of our graduates have enriched the School because of their time here.

While we cannot name the thousands of graduates, we thank you all.



Looking back

"When I look back to my graduation day at McGill over 35 years ago, I could never have imagined the changes that I would not only see in my field, but that I would actively participate in creating. I would not have had these opportunities, nor would I have had this chance to speak to you today, without my McGill degree. I know that your education wills similarly open doors of opportunity and that you have the knowledge and skills that you need to meet the challenges that lie ahead.

Something that has become ever clearer to over the years is how essential it is to give and receive the support of others. It is all about building and maintaining positive and nurturing relationships at every level. Fundamental to this process is learning to support and accept ourselves as we are, so that we can extend our support and acceptance to others."

from Joanne Gard Marshall's convocation address upon being conferred the honourary degree of Doctor of Letters on May 30, 2005.
