About Our SIG
Our Mission Statement: SIG HFIS encourages and supports work on the history and theoretical development of information science. It serves as a forum for the interaction of all fields of study that have the potential for increasing understanding of the history, theories, fundamental concepts, and models of information science. (Adopted 1995 when the SIG took on its present name).
SIG HFIS regularly organizes and sponsors sessions for the annual meeting of ASIS&T, and the chair of the SIG serves as a representative on the editorial board of Information & Culture: A Journal of History. Information about the representation is here.
News of interest to HFIS, not strictly about the SIG, are often shared in the discussion forum, where current SIG members can also be viewed.
