The Rutgers LIS Department faculty determine which students are eligible for induction into Beta Phi Mu, Omicron Chapter.  This happens in February or March of a given year, with a list of graduates from the preceding May, October and January graduations.

If you are graduating in May of a given year, you will not be eligible for induction until the next spring.

Example: Eligible inductees for 2013 consisted of May 2012, October 2012, and January 2013 graduates.

The Omicron Chapter then sends out invitation letters to the eligible graduates.
