Buckland, Michael
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n11 p970-74 Sep 1999
Discusses the American Society for Information Science (ASIS), founded in 1937 as the American Document Institute. Examines two traditions in information science--a document tradition concerned with signifying objects and their use, and a computational tradition of applying algorithmic, logical, mathematical, and mechanical techniques to information management. Discusses university-based programs, the "Information Paradigm," and the complex landscape of information science. (AEF)
