NASIG Conference Registration is waiting for you!
We know travel dollars are tight or non-existent, but we
also know that the NASIG conference is the best deal around.
 If you are into electronic resource acquisition,
management, or general e-resource wrangling, serials or
e-resource cataloging, collection development, serials or
other related areas, NASIG offers targeted programs to
assist in your professional development and some of the best
networking around.  For those who are still “on the
fence,” here are a couple of things to consider.
Times being what they are, this is THE conference not to
miss.  Why?

The Program
 As usual, we have an excellent line up of cutting-edge
speakers and poster sessions waiting to inspire and inform
you.   Also informal discussion groups where you can share
ideas with your peers and talk with publishing
representatives.  See:
We’ve also got several great pre-conferences with seats
still open.  If you are a cataloger in the Southeast or
Mid-Atlantic region, here’s a chance to register for an
official SCCTP workshop on Electronic resources/serials
cataloging.  Get it while it’s close by!  Our other
pre-conferences are also valuable opportunities to bone up
on e-journal strategies and licensing.  See:

Opportunities to Network & Forget Our Budget Woes for a Few
Asheville is quite a fun town, with many cultural and
culinary offerings within easy walking distance of the two
conference hotels (which are right across the street from
each other).  We’re providing wonderful live music at the
Crest Center on Saturday night – see:
Our optional NASIG evening at the Biltmore Estate is going
to be fabulous and will give participants a wonderful
dinner, a private evening tour, plus the opportunity to
return for more exploration later in the week.  It’s a
real deal.  For more information see:
The Asheville Tourists baseball team will be playing.
Asheville has many brewpubs, arts and crafts, nature trails
and hiking, the list goes on.  See:

Special Program for First-Timers

conference, will be posted soon.
