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.
