Lambda Chapter

Founded in 1967, the Lambda Chapter represents the University of Oklahoma School of Library and Information Studies. The chapter currently has more than 200 enrolled members.

Motto & Insignia

Aliis inserviendo consumor serves as the society's motto; translated from the Latin, it means "consumed in the service of others." Members of the society—librarians and other information professionals—dedicate themselves to serving the information needs of individuals, organizations, and communities.

A dolphin and anchor, the mark of Venetian printer Aldus Manutius, serves as the society's insignia, appearing on various pins, buttons, and similar memorabilia. The society's colors, as signified on honor cords, are purple and white.
