Just a guess – there’s probably a lot of overlap between the two. However, as suggested by their names, my first impression of “IS&T” is that you’re learning how to build it, where “IS” is more about how to use what’s built.

I may be and probably am wrong (or possibly being too general).

    Information Systems are manual or computer based systems (structures) providing information to their owners or users (typically the managers of a firm), while “Information Science and Technology” is the study of how to make Information Systems etc. etc. and how to make the most efficient use of technology in handling information.

    Information science studies the application and usage of knowledge in organizations, and the interaction between people, organizations and information systems.

    In later years when library scientists began to also use the expression “Information Science” to refer to their work, the expression ‘informatics’ became common in the USA by ‘real’ computer scientists to distinguish their work from that of library science, and in Britain as a term for a science of the study of information-processing systems.
