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.

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.
