Welcome to the ASIS&T Digital Library
An online collection created to foster the study and practice of information science. The ASIS&T Digital Library consists of regularly published journals and annual publications from The Association for Information Science and Technology, an association of information professionals leading the search for new and better theories, techniques, and technologies to improve access to information.
What is this all about?
The Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, a fully refereed, scholarly and technical periodical, has been published continuously since 1950. Edited by Blaise Cronin, Indiana University, JASIST publishes reports of research and development in a wide range of subjects and applications in information science and technology. It serves as a forum for new research in information transfer and communication processes in general, and in the context of recorded knowledge in particular.
Annual Review of Information Science and Technology comprehensively reviews and synthesizes yearly trends in the different branches of information science. ARIST ceased publication in 2012.
Bulletin of the Association for Information Science and Technology, is the bi-monthly newsletter with developments and issues affecting the field, pragmatic management reports, opinion pieces, and news of people and events in the information science community.
Proceedings of the ASIST Annual Meetings printed continuously since 1963, contains the contributed papers presented at the annual meetings. Information Today, Inc. publishes the print Proceedings each year for ASIST.
