Pi Lambda Sigma

Pi Lambda Sigma (also: ΠΛΣ or πλσ) was the first library science honor society in the United States. [ [http://bpm.syr.edu/ Pi Lambda Sigma website] ]

Founded at Syracuse University in 1903, it merged with (and became a chapter of) Beta Phi Mu in 1959. [http://www.sla.org/speciallibraries/ISSN00386723V50N8.PDF "Special Libraries", October 1959 (vol 50, no 8), p. 402.] ]

After a century since its founding, Pi Lambda Sigma remains actively affiliated with Syracuse's [http://ischool.syr.edu School of Information Studies] , initiating new members annually as well as sponsoring various scholarships.
