Registration for the 25th Annual North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) conference is open now through May 20, with a special discount available to NASIG members who register by April 25, 2010. Please visit the conference website to register and find more information about the upcoming conference.
If you have not yet explored this year’s program, please check out the program details at http://www.nasig.org/conference_program.cfm. The 25th Annual Conference will feature exciting and informative Vision sessions with Eric Miller, President, Zepheira (http://zepheira.com/), Kent Anderson, Editor-in-chief, Scholarly Kitchen (http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/) and a panel on current and future developments in library systems.
As in previous years, the program will also offer a variety of in-depth Strategy and practitioner-oriented Tactics sessions in the areas of acquisitions and licensing, cataloging and access, collection development, and scholarly communication. Many of this year’s programs focus on ways to make the most of collections, tools, and staff resources. Topics include patron-driven selection, sustainable scholarly publishing, metadata interoperability, and e-resource management, among many others. In addition to the scheduled programming, there will be opportunities available throughout the conference for informal discussion on emerging topics of interest.
This year’s preconference on Resource Description and Access (RDA) has nearly reached capacity. To be added to a waiting list, contact Jennifer Arnold at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you in Palm Springs!
