NASIG 30th Annual Conference
NASIG at 30: Building the Digital Future
May 27-30, 2015
The 2015 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals for conference sessions. Publishers, vendors, librarians, and others in the fields of electronic resources and serials are encouraged to submit proposals relating to scholarly communication, publishing, resource acquisition, management, and discovery. Proposals based on emerging trends, case studies, and descriptive and experimental research findings
This is the 30th year of the NASIG conference, and we are particularly interested in proposals that look at historic trend analysis of the serials industry over the past 30
years, as well as visions of the future of the industry based on our history.
As we have in recent years, the PPC specifically welcomes programs focusing on the Core Competencies that the NASIG Core Competency Task Force developed for Electronic
Resources Librarians. Please refer to the Core Competencies, http://bit.ly/1ovwjkk.
Program topics from the Core Competencies:
• Electronic resource life cycle and management
• Collection analysis and development
• Standards and systems of cataloging and classification, metadata, and indexing
• Technology and providing access to electronic resources
• Licensing and legal framework
• Standards, initiatives, and best practices
• Scholarly communication
Please use the online form, http://proposalspace.com/calls/d/392, to submit a proposal or program or idea.
This Call for Proposals will close on November 30, 2014.
Please note the following:
• The PPC 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 one to three speakers for conference sessions. Panels of four (4) or more speakers are discouraged must be discussed in advance with the Program Planning Committee
• Please refer to the NASIG reimbursement policy, http://bit.ly/YIeyYA, for reimbursement of speaker expenses.
• All session speakers must complete a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) prior to speaking at the conference.
Inquiries may be sent to PPC at: email@example.com
We look forward to a great conference in Arlington!
