2014 John Merriman Joint NASIG/UKSG Award

Win a fully funded trip across the Pond!

Enter our joint NASIG/UKSG competition to attend the premier conference for the scholarly information community on the other side of the Atlantic. As a NASIG member, you could win a trip to the UKSG Annual Conference in Harrogate, 14-16 April 2014.

NASIG (North American Serials Interest Group) and UKSG are sister organisations offering two lucky winners, one each from NASIG and UKSG, the chance to attend each other’s annual conference. The award is intended to cover travel and accommodation costs and each award recipient will also receive paid conference registration, which includes most meals, for the applicable 2014 conference. It provides an opportunity for people to learn and share experiences.

The award is named in honour of John Merriman, in recognition of his work in starting both UKSG and NASIG, and the UK award winner will be supported by the kind sponsorship of Taylor & Francis Group.

The award is open to members of NASIG and UKSG with one recipient being chosen from each organisation. Applicants must be working with serials/e-resources/library users at a practical level in library and information services. [Current Board members and Officers of NASIG and UKSG are not eligible.]

Please submit the a completed application form and reference questionnaire electronically either in Microsoft Word or plain text (.txt) format by Friday 7 February 2014:
Applications will be judged on evidence of awareness of issues in the wider scholarly communication world and evidence of clear aims from attendance at the conference. English is the designated language.

The successful NASIG recipient will be required to write an article about their conference experiences for the NASIG Newsletter.

Application forms and reference questionnaires are available through the NASIG AWARDS Page at http://www.nasig.org and from Leigh Ann DePope, Chair, NASIG Awards & Recognition Committee.
