About Sigsti-l
English (USA)

Welcome to the SIG STI listserv, created for the Special Interest Group on Scientific and Technical Information Systems of the American Society for Information Science.

The listserv is managed by Joe Hourcle (oneiros at

The purpose of this listserv is to assist in the planning of the ASIS SIG STI and for related postings of interest to the SIG STI community. The SIG STI community is concerned with access to information in the pure and applied sciences; including production, organization, and dissemination of this scientific and technical information. Academics, practitioners, commercial providers, government representatives, students, and all other interested persons are welcome.

This listserv is unmoderated, however you do need to be subscribed to the listserv to post messages to it. There are no fees for participation, and membership in ASIS itself is not required.

There are no formal rules for participation: just be polite and respectful. Challenge ideas, but not people.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Sigsti-l Archives.
