The UT Austin student chapter of ASIS&T seeks to promote the professional and academic development of all UT students working in the fields of information science. We sponsor lectures, panel discussions, and networking events with practitioners in the field. We also provide various resources, career advice, and opportunities for community engagement. We are currently focusing on areas such as information architecture, user-centered design, and usability. We also work closely with AWIT (Advocating for Women in Technology), another UT iSchool student organization that holds events focused on the issue of gender diversity within the IT field.
The Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) is a nonprofit professional society founded in 1937 for scientific, literary, and educational purposes and is dedicated to the creation, organization, dissemination, and application of knowledge concerning information and its transfer.
