NASIG 26th Annual Conference

Gateway to Collaboration

June 2-5, 2011

St. Louis, Missouri

The 2011 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals
for preconference, vision, strategy, and tactics sessions.
The program planners are interested in hearing from
publishers, vendors, librarians, and others in the field of
serials and electronic resources about issues relating to
scholarly communication, publishing, and resource
acquisition, management, and discovery. Proposals related to
ebook management, discovery services, changing roles for
support staff, and cataloging standards and workflow are
particularly timely. Proposals based on emerging trends,
case studies, and descriptive and experimental research
findings are encouraged.

To propose a program or idea, please use the online form

Please note the following:

·         The Program Planning Committee reviews all
submitted proposals and hopes to notify applicants of the
status of their proposals in December 2010.

·         The Program Planning Committee welcomes
proposals that are still in the formative stages, and may
work with potential presenters to focus their proposals

·         Proposals should name any particular products or
services that are integral to the content of the
presentation. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, programs
should not be used as a venue to promote or attack any
product, service, or institution.

·         Time management issues generally limit each
session to two speakers for Tactics sessions or three
speakers for Strategy sessions. Panels of four (4) or more
speakers must be discussed in advance with the Program
Planning Committee (

·         Proposals may be accepted as a different type of
session than was originally suggested; this decision is the
purview of the Program Planning Committee.

·         NASIG has a reimbursement policy for conference
speakers whose organizations do not cover expenses.

We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis!
