It was getting to be kind of silly to have so many web-presences around, so we’ve consolidated over at blogs.ubc.ca/asist/. Please visit us over there. All of the posts and comments below have migrated over, so we hope you’ll update your bookmarks. (We’ve also turned off comments across this site to encourage you to go to the new one.)

The RSS feed for the new site is right here if you’re reading this via RSS and don’t want to go to all the trouble of clicking through to sites and finding stuff.

Thanks very much!

Respond by July 20, 2009


To help ASIS&T student members who might not otherwise be able to participate in ASIS&T meetings, we provide  an opportunity to attend the sessions and network with other members in exchange for assisting us in running the meeting.  Students who have participated in our program have found the experience “terrific.”


How the Program Works

In exchange for complimentary registration, we’ll ask you to help us run the conference.  You’ll serve as a room monitor for about three sessions each day for three days.  In addition, you’ll help out either at our registration desk or conference headquarters for a 4-hour period on one day of the conference.

How to Participate


If you would like to be considered for this program, for the 2009 Annual Meeting, to be held November 6-11 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada .  Please forward your name, address, phone, fax and e-mail numbers to:


American Society for Information Science & Technology

ATTN.: ASIS&T 2008 Annual Meeting

1320 Fenwick Lane, Suite 510

Silver Spring, MD 20910

FAX: (301) 495-0810

e-mail: lvick@asis.org


There are a limited number of positions  available, and applications are considered on a first come/first served basis, so be sure to let us know of your interest by July 20, 2009.

ASIS&T at UBC is pleased to announce several upcoming workshops for SLAIS students on techy tools to make your life easier. These workshops were designed and will be taught by the digital media interns at SLAIS.

Zotero – The Next Generation of Research Tools

Terrace Lab, Jan 29th, 12-2pm

Zotero is a Firefox that helps you collect, organize and cite your research sources. Come to the workshop if you’re tired of RefWorks — or (like me) copying down citation information by hand.

Delicious and iGoogle – Gateways to Academic Success

Terrace Lab, Feb 4th, 12-2pm

Can Delicious and iGoogle be beneficial to students and academics? Yes! Come find out how.

Delicious is a social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, organize, search and share web pages through the web. iGoogle provides users with a customizable web site, allowing users to put all their favorite online gadgets in one place — RSS feeds, Google Calendar, various social software, etc. It also manages URLS, usernames and passwords!
