ASIS&T (the Association of Information Science and Technology) at UBC is a student organization at the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (SLAIS). The ASIS&T parent organization brings together everyone involved in Information Science and information research, from technical specialists, to librarians, from researchers, to business professionals - all fields that need, use, or investigate information fall under the ASIS&T umbrella. At UBC, the student chapter offers a chance to bring together students involved in the information sciences from across campus to develop programs and events of interest to our student body. The student chapter also offers social networking, discussion groups, as well as career and educational development opportunities.
Other past projects include organizing student-led workshops on using various technologies such as twitter and zotero, attending and volunteering at the international ASIS&T conference, and helping organize the SLAIS Research Day.
