Maggie Rioux NASIG Publicist ************************************************************************** 2003 Marcia Tuttle International Grant Announcement The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) is currently seeking candidates for a $2000 grant to provide funding for an individual working in any area of the serials information chain to foster international communication and education through activities such as but not limited to research, collaborative projects, job exchanges, and presentation of papers at conferences. Applicants may be either North American serialists seeking funding for appropriate overseas activities or serialists outside North America seeking funding for appropriate activities in North America. The grant is named in honor of Marcia Tuttle. 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. In addition to the grant, the recipient will also receive a one-year NASIG membership. The 2003 NASIG conference will be held at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, June 26-29, 2003.
