The Asia-Pacific Chapter of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) will present their activities which closely support the iSchool concept. Members from Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Education and International Information Issues, and participants of the Asian Pacific, Taipei and European Chapters (chapter of the year in 2016) and the European Student Chapter will discuss their programs. The intended audience includes new iSchool students who are not members of ASIST and iSchools staff not familiar with ASIS&T, and particularly the institutional membership program. Membership costs (significantly reduced for developing nations) and benefits (including access to the ASIS&T Journal Database) will be detailed.
