NASIG is seeking conference recorders for sessions at this year’s annual conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 8-11. Recorders are asked to attend specific sessions, take notes and then synthesize the notes into a readable, comprehensive report of the session for the Conference Proceedings. For vision sessions, recorders may be asked to listen to a recording of a presentation and work with the speaker to create a report for publication in the Proceedings. Recorders will work under the general direction of the Proceedings Editors.
If you are able to write clear, organized prose, and submit a report by July 28th, please consider this opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the profession and to NASIG.
To apply, please fill at the application form at: https://goo.gl/forms/6yKWBqkvOr0NURvw2
Application Deadline: May 8th
The application will require:
- Your contact information
- Whether you have previously served as a recorder for the NASIG Proceedings and the year(s)
- A link to a writing sample. The writing sample can be on any topic; it does not have to be related to librarianship. The purpose of the writing sample is to illustrate your writing ability. Suggested samples include journal articles, book chapters, research papers, or reports on a process, event, or meeting. Minutes of meetings or brief book reviews are not appropriate as they do not offer enough text to gauge writing style/ability.
