InfoShare winners announced!

InfoShare, a program sponsored by SIG-III, awards one-year ASIS&T memberships to information professionals in developing countries for whom the cost of membership would be a financial burden. InfoShare increases awareness of the importance of international cooperation, facilitates and enhances communication and interaction among ASIS&T members and colleagues worldwide, and provides a forum for exploration and discussion of international information issues.

Recipients must reside in a country where there is no ASIS&T chapter, and may be practitioners, researchers, or students enrolled in an information science program. This year SIG-III is please to offer InfoShare awards to nine information professionals, two of whom are students.

InfoShare Memberships:

* Mumtaz Memon (Pakistan)
* Maqsood Shaheen (Pakistan)

* Yuanxin Zhong (China)

* Abdul Waheed (Pakistan)
