Join Us!

Are you interested in information science? Are you currently enrolled part-time or full-time as an RU graduate student? Think about becoming a member of RUasis&t!! We are the Rutgers University student chapter of the American Society for Information Science & Technology.

As members of RUasis&t, we will promote the advancement of information science within academic curricula, and provide liaison between the academic community and local organizations, agencies, firms, or groups. Membership in RUasis&t is FREE! and it makes you eligible for membership in ASIS&T and NJ-ASIST for the low, low price of $40 (a $100 discount off the “regular” dues).

Members are presented with an unlimited number of opportunities to develop their own interests and enrich their educational experience at SC&I. Some of the ways that you can do this are by becoming an officer, a technology workshop instructor or assistant, a speaker, field trip organizer or even a webmaster.

If you would like to be an RUasis&t member, please contact us or send an e-mail with your name and preferred e-mail address to When we receive your e-mail, we will send you information about how to register for our discussion forum on the NJ-ASIS&T bulletin board.

Please note: membership is available to all graduate students, whether you are enrolled online or on campus. As a graduate student organization, as long as the majority of our members are graduate students, we are also permitted to have undergraduate members.

Thanks in advance for your interest!
