2003 Marcia Tuttle International Grant


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.

NASIG is an international organization committed to promoting
communication and sharing of ideas among all people working with or
concerned about serial publications. More information about the
organization is available at
