Resources for the CIS Community

Mailing Lists

There are various mailing lists to reach different groups within the program.

  • cis-chair @ lists dot hawaii dot edu
  • cis-students @ lists dot hawaii dot edu
  • cis-faculty @ lists dot hawaii dot edu
  • cis-alumni @ lists dot hawaii dot edu
  • cis-program @ lists dot hawaii dot edu (includes the above lists, as well as retired faculty and members of the CIS community, broadly construed). Please use this list only for announcements of general interest.
  • With the exception of the cis-chair address, only people who are already on the lists can send emails to them. Contact the chair if you think you should have access to any of the mailing lists.

    Graduate Student Office

    Students in the CIS PhD program have access to an office inside the Library and Information Science suite in the basement of Hamilton Library.

    Online Community Workspace

    Students, faculty, alumni, and friends of the CIS program can communicate and share information in the program's community workspace and virtual home at disCourse.

    If you think you should have access to the CIS community workspace, and you don't have a disCourse account, you can sign up for a disCourse membership. When filling out the form please mention how you are connected to the CIS program.

    Library Resources

    Library resources for CIS courses and the Comprehensive Examinations are available through the Communication and Information Sciences Subject Page at Hamilton Library's website. Candidates should refer to the most current study guides (primary/secondary exam reading lists) available from the coordinators for the areas in which they wish to concentrate.

    Graduate Division Forms

    Students must submit forms to the Graduate Records office upon the completion of milestones, such as proposal defense and dissertation defense. The most current version of these forms may be obtained from the Graduate Division website.

    Research on Human Subjects

    Information on how to conduct research using human subjects, and the form needed to submit to Graduate Division, are available from the UH Committee on Human Studies at: www.hawaii.edu/irb/
