Projects & Programs
Share the Knowlege Project
The Share the Knowledge Program is a joint project with a goal to distribute sport science, physical education and sport books to institutions that do not have the financial resources to buy them. Human Kinetics Publishers (HKP) is donating books that are not fit for resale (but are highly usable) to institutes in developing countries who are in need of literature for study, research and practical work in sport science, physical education, sport and fitness. The program is organized by the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE), supported by the International Association for Sport Information with financial support for the transport of the books provided by the International Olympic Committee.
Consult the following three documents for detailed information on the project, including which institutions are eligible to apply for books, what institutions have received books and the form where the applicant can indicate the resources needed.

International Indexing Contributor's Project and Rewards
IASI is a partner with SIRC: Sport Research, the producer of the international sport database, SPORTDiscus. For many decades IASI members have been encouraged to contribute unique sport records to the database. Australia's National Sport Information Centre, France's contributions via their sport sciences database Heracles, the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles and the IOC's Olympic Studies Centre are presently contributors along with individuals in various countries. The richness and comprehensiveness of the database depends on these contributors.
SIRC holds workshops on indexing usually at the annual meetings or by special arrangement. In addition a number of products are available to the indexer, the Thesaurus and the Technical Manual and other rewards. See the following sections of SIRC website for further information:
