Notes from the ASIS&T special interest group in international information


Founded in 1982, the Special Interest Group for International Information Issues (SIG-III) is an interest group focusing on international information issues — in other words the global flow of information, and how people from different countries and cultural backgrounds think about and use information differently. A special interest group within the American Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T), the purposes of SIG-III are

— To promote better awareness among ASIS&T members and information professionals of the importance of international cooperation;

— To facilitate and enhance better communication and interaction among ASIS&T members and their foreign colleagues on information issues;

— To develop an international network of digital scholars and experts on digital libraries and information technology in developing countries; and

— To provide a forum for exploring and discussing international information issues and problems. SIG-III membership includes most non-U.S. ASIS&T members and a true cross-section of U.S. ASIS&T members.
