2nd Call for Proposals – NASIG 2012

NASIG 27th Annual Conference
Creating Harmony from Dis-chord
June 7 – 10, 2012
Nashville, Tennessee

The 2012 Program Planning Committee (PPC) extends a second call for proposals for conference sessions. We welcome all proposals related to electronic resources and serials, and we are particularly interested in the following topics in order to provide a diverse conference program:

Archiving and Preservation
Cataloging and Metadata
Mobile Technology
Publishing and Scholarly communication

Other conference tracks include:

Access and Discovery
Acquisitions and Licensing
Collection Development
eResources, eSerials, eBooks and  eManagement
Open Access and Digital Repositories

To propose a program or idea, please use the online form. This Call for Proposals will close on October 28, 2011.

Please note the following:

  • Formerly, NASIG conferences included sessions with the designations of “Strategy” and “Tactic.” These designations will not be used at the 2012 conference, and all sessions that formerly held these designations will be one hour long.
  • The Program Planning Committee welcomes proposals that are still in the formative stages, and may work with potential presenters to focus their proposals further.
  • Proposals should name any particular products or services that are integral to the content of the presentation. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, programs should not be used as a venue to promote or attack any product, service, or institution.
  • Time management issues generally limit each session to two to three speakers for conference sessions. Panels of four (4) or more speakers must be discussed in advance with the Program Planning Committee (prog-plan@nasig.org)
  • NASIG has a reimbursement policy for conference speakers whose organizations do not cover expenses.

Inquiries may be sent to the PPC Chair (Michael Hanson) and Vice Chair (Karen Davidson) at: prog-plan@nasig.org

We look forward to a great conference in Nashville!
