Since 1937, the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) has been the association for information professionals leading the search for new and better theories, techniques, and technologies to improve access to information.
ASIS&T brings together diverse streams of knowledge, focusing what might be disparate approaches into novel solutions to common problems. ASIS&T bridges the gaps not only between disciplines but also between the research that drives and the practices that sustain new developments.
ASIS&T counts among its membership some 4, 000 information specialists from such fields as computer science, linguistics, management, librarianship, engineering, law, medicine, chemistry, and education; individuals who share a common interest in improving the ways society stores, retrieves, analyzes, manages, archives and disseminates information, coming together for mutual benefit.
Techniques and technologies emerge daily in the fields of library and information science, communications, networking and computer science. Yet information professionals in one discipline are often unaware of key developments in others. What an irony that a field advocating the development, sharing and use of information is itself isolated.
If you don't like working in isolation, examine what ASIS&T has to offer. This Web site will introduce you to ASIS&T and the ways it can make you a more effective information professional... and more indispensable to your company, institution or organization.
