Call for presentations: Open Source Applications


LACASIS, the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Society for

Information Science and Technology, is planning a workshop in

March-April, 2005 on interesting open source applications. Do you have

an information science/library-related project based on open source

tools? We are looking for creative applications having to do with the

analysis, storage, management, retrieval and/or dissemination of

information in useful ways. We would like to emphasize local projects.

Please feel free to forward this message to interested parties.


About ASIS&T


Since 1937, the American Society for Information Science and

Technology (ASIS&T) has been the society for information professionals leading

the search for new and better theories, techniques, and technologies

to improve access to information.


ASIS&T brings together diverse streams of knowledge, focusing what

might be disparate approaches into novel solutions to common problems.

ASIS&T bridges the gaps not only between disciplines but also between

the research that drives and the practices that sustain new developments.


ASIS&T counts among its  membership some 4,000 information specialists

from such fields as computer science, linguistics, management,

librarianship, engineering, law, medicine, chemistry, and education;

individuals who share a common interest in improving the ways society

stores, retrieves, analyzes, manages, archives and disseminates

information, coming together for mutual benefit.




ASIST's Southern California chapter began life in 1961, when it was

chartered as the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Documentation
