About ASIS&T McGill Student Chapter
In September 2010, McGill’s School of Information Studies was granted a chapter charter. The purpose of the student chapter is to provide an organization through which student members of ASIS&T may share their special concerns, find academic support, participate in information science programs for students and other members of the community, build professional networks and make contributions to the profession. Student chapter participation is also intended to provide students with experience in being active ASIS&T members, and to contribute to personal growth and career development. We hope to create a collegial environment for students to participate, share, learn, dream and grow.
