Information Science Abstracts Becomes Information Science & Technology Abstracts

Jan 24, 2003

Information Science Abstracts (ISA) has been renamed Information Science & Technology Abstracts (ISTA). Published nine times a year by Information Today, Inc., ISTA has provided worldwide library and information science records from more than 450 publications dating back to 1966. The new name reflects recognition of the changes in the field of information science that occurred during the last decade and which are recorded in the literature that ISTA abstracts. As information has moved during the past few years towards becoming a commodity, the information science profession has also grown from its beginnings in the library and information retrieval world to become more interdisciplinary. Information Today, Inc. is a publisher of books, periodicals, and directories pertaining to library and information science and the electronic delivery of information. ITI is also the organizer and sponsor of many conferences, such as InfoToday, Computers in Libraries, KMWorld & Intranets, and Internet Librarian.
