August message from the SIG-III Chair in July

Hello everyone,

Yes, I realize I'm very early with this message, but enough has been going on over the past week that I want to share it with you all now.

The most important piece of news is that we have three winners for the International Paper Contest. Please congratulate Muhammad Rafiq, Muhammad Arif, and Saima Kanwal on their winning papers! I have announced them over the SIG-III Blog.

International Paper Contest winners

Muhammed Rafiq

SIG-III is pleased to announce two winners for the 2009 International Paper Contest. The first place award goes to Muhammad Rafiq (pictured above), from Pakistan, who will be awarded a two-year membership to ASIS&T, as well as funding to travel to this year’s annual Meeting. His paper is titled “[The] LIS community’s perceptions towards open source software adoption in libraries.”

June message from the SIG-III Chair

Greetings everyone,

I just wanted to take a moment to update you all about what has been going on in SIG-III for the past two months. I (Aaron) have been working on the SIG-III website, examining each of the site’s pages for currency and focus. I’m pleased to announce that I’ve completed my refresh of the website, and each page that required revision (which translated to every page on the site except one) is up to date. You can see it here.

InfoShare winners announced!

InfoShare, a program sponsored by SIG-III, awards one-year ASIS&T memberships to information professionals in developing countries for whom the cost of membership would be a financial burden. InfoShare increases awareness of the importance of international cooperation, facilitates and enhances communication and interaction among ASIS&T members and colleagues worldwide, and provides a forum for exploration and discussion of international information issues.
