PROJECT BACKGROUND


In response to a proposal made by SIG/HFIS in 1994, the ASIS SIG Special Projects Fund awarded a small grant to the University of South Carolina College of Library and Information Science for the purposes of: 1). identifying the early pioneering individuals and organizations of information science in North America; 2). determining the location of personal and corporate papers for these people and organizations; 3). preparation of a bibliography on the history of information science in North America. An advisory group of long-term ASIS members and historians of information science worked with the project. The project was completed in 1996.
