Second Call for Proposals
NASIG 24th Annual Conference
Riding the Rapids Through a Mountain of Change
June 4-7, 2009
Asheville, North Carolina

The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) 2009
Program Planning Committee (PPC) extends a second call for
proposals and/or program ideas for pre-conference, vision,
strategy, and tactics sessions. We welcome all proposals
related to serials and electronic resources, and we are
particularly interested in the following topics in order to
provide a diverse conference program:
•	Standards, their application, and the impact on content
providers and libraries
•	Licensing issues, including negotiation of terms,
workflows, and integration with publisher, vendor, and
library systems
•	Changes in the cataloging environment, including RDA and
other policy or standard decisions and the effects of
changes in the discovery of library resources
•	Serials-related issues in scholarly communication,
access and preservation of intellectual content, such as
library-managed journal publication and data curation
•	Continuing development of ERM, including evaluations of
effectiveness, workflow changes, and other aspects not
previously examined at NASIG conferences
•	Programs reporting the findings of descriptive or
experimental research on serials-related topics

The Program Planning Committee will review all submitted
proposals for their content, timeliness, and reserves the
right to combine, blend, or refocus proposals to maximize
their relevance and to avoid duplication.

This Call for Proposals will close on October 31, 2008.
Presentations must be original and not previously presented
at other conferences. The Programming Planning Committee
hopes to notify applicants of the status of their proposals
in December 2008. Inquiries may be sent to the PPC
co-chairs, Erika Ripley and Morag Boyd at:
