January 16, 2013

A new five-year Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the University of North Carolina School of Information and Library Science (SILS) and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) to “establish a cooperative relationship in the field of scientific and technical information.” The agreement provides a formal mechanism for sharing information between the two organizations.

“KISTI is a specialized institute providing STI services to the public to promote national competitiveness in science and technology by actively challenging [the] world paradigm.”

Future activities between SILS and KISTI may consist of exchanging data or visiting one another’s organizations; technical assistance; cooperation on minor research projects; and/or other cooperative activities such as developing courses and academic programs or offering exchange opportunities for students and researchers.
