The ASIS&T does not appear to offer any specific services through it's History of Information Technology website, other than providing access to IT history itself. The ASIS&T -- the larger organization itself through its 56 chapters and 20 special interest groups -- edits, publishes, and disseminates publications concerning research and development; convenes annual meetings providing a forum for papers, discussions, and major policy statements; ASIS&T hosted the first Information Architecture Summit and continues to do so annually, holds smaller chapter and special interest meetings, as well as special symposia; and acts as a sounding board for promotion of research and development and for the education of information professionals.
