Education for Information Science (ED)


SIG/ED focuses on the education - at all levels - of those concerned with the handling of information. It is a forum for coordinating efforts of educators in a wide variety of information-oriented fields, including computer and communications science, librarianship and management. Levels encompass basic education for the profession, advanced education and research, and continuing professional education. Its programs center on such topics as curriculum design, research, instructional resources and methods, manpower needs, placement, recruitment to the profession, continuing education and educational program planning. SIG/ED administers the Doctoral Forum at each ASIS&T Annual Meeting and the annual Student Paper Contest.
