Voting for the NASIG Vision and Mission statements will run from October 24th to November 7th. The proposed Vision and Mission statements have been posted to the membership for public comment for two weeks. Based on feedback from the membership, the Executive Board has slightly revised the statements. The Executive Board proposes the adoption of the following:
NASIG is an independent organization working to advance and transform the management of information resources. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate and improve the distribution, acquisition, and long-term accessibility of information resources in all formats and business models.
There are three key components to NASIG’s mission:
- NASIG supports a dynamic community of professionals including, but not limited to, librarians, publishers, and vendors engaging in understanding one another’s perspectives and improving functionality throughout the information resources lifecycle with an emphasis on scholarly communications, serials, and electronic resources.
- NASIG provides a rich variety of conference and continuing education programming to encourage knowledge sharing among its members and to support their professional and career development.
- NASIG promotes the development and implementation of best practices and standards for the distribution, acquisition and long-term accessibility of information resources in all formats and business models throughout their lifecycle. In addition to developing best practices, NASIG supports the development of standards by NISO, an affiliated organization.
