***Marcia Tuttle Biography***

Marcia Tuttle has had a distinguished career in serials librarianship.
She was the winner of the first Bowker/Ulrich's Serials Librarianship
Award in 1985.  Marcia published her landmark textbook, "Introduction to
Serials Management" in 1983.  The series continued with five volumes of
"Advances in Serials Management", which Marcia originated and co-edited
from 1985-1992.  The series is used by all affiliated with the serials
business.  Another publication which Marcia began publishing and editing
in the 1980's is "The Newsletter on Serials Pricing Issues (NSPI)".
This is a timely publication for librarians worldwide with practical
information and controversial viewpoints on serials pricing and related
topics.  Marcia also serves on the editorial board for "Serials
Review".   With October Ivins, Marcia organized the Aqueduct Group, a
retreat for librarians to discuss a variety of topics relating to
serials.  Out of these gatherings came a call for action known as "The
Aqueduct Agenda" which was published in "The Chronicle of Higher
Education", "Library Journal", and "Serials Review".

Marcia was one of a select few to attend a United Kingdom Serials Group
(UKSG) conference in 1984, a meeting of minds/ideas, which resulted in a
genesis of our own national serials organization (NASIG). The North
American Serials Interest Group held its first conference in 1986.
Marcia was present at the first NASIG conference and has attended many
NASIG Conferences since.  She served as chair of the Conference Planning
Committee (CPC) for the Tenth Anniversary Conference held at Duke
University in 1996.  She has chaired the ALA RTSD (now ALCTS) Serials
Section.  Marcia currently serves as an associate moderator for
SERIALST.  She has taught a generation of serials librarians (and some
vendors) in her serials courses at the library school at the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Marcia loves to travel, and she
enjoys makings presentations on serials topics.  Over the years she has
been invited to speak at meetings all over North America, as well as at
conferences in Europe, South Africa and Australia.  A number of these
talks have been published in various library journals.  Marcia Tuttle is
indeed a well respected international librarian, and it is an honor to
have this International Grant named
after her.
