The charge of the Information Professionals Task Force is to create a web presence that highlights the diversity and value of the information professions to increase awareness and interest among the general public and students. It will also serve as a point of contact between potential employers, and established and aspiring information professionals. The web presence will be designed to define “Information Professional,” as a generic term to refer to professionally trained workers in information intensive environments, but will also include the ASIS&T brand. The site will highlight information professional career paths and job descriptions and will provide leads to educational programs, jobs, and professional organizations.
