ASIS Midyear '98 Proceedings

Collaboration Across Boundaries:
Theories, Strategies, and Technology

Collaboration for Community Outreach:
Bridging the Gap

Sponsored by SIG LAN, SIG TIS, and SIG MED


Panelists will describe community outreach programs which either use technology to give information to the community, offer direct service to the community using technology, or help instruct the community in the use of technology. Discussion after the presentation will focus on community outreach. Who are the information have-nots in our communities? What are their needs? What do we have to offer? How can we help? How can we form coalitions and collaborative projects to help?
