The American Society for Information Science and Technology’s (ASIS&T) Special Interest Group for Education (SIG ED) focuses on the education – at all levels – of those concerned with the handling of information.
SIG ED’s programs center on such topics as curriculum design, research, instructional resources and methods, manpower needs, placement, recruitment to the profession, continuing education and educational program planning. It is a forum for coordinating efforts of educators in a wide variety of information-oriented fields, including computer and communications science, librarianship, and management. Levels encompass basic education for the profession, advanced education and research, and continuing professional education.
