NASIG 30th Annual Conference

The 2015 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites
publishers, vendors, librarians, and others in the fields of
electronic resources and serials to submit proposals
relating to the topics of library as publisher,
library/publisher/vendor relationships, open access, and
scholarly communications.

This is the 30th year of the NASIG conference, and we are
particularly interested in proposals that look at historic
trend analysis of the serials industry over the past 30
years, as well as visions of the future of the industry
based on our history (i.e. ebooks becoming a serial-like).

Other programming tracks at the conference include resource
acquisition, management, and discovery, as well as other
topics related to the Core Competencies:

* Electronic resource life cycle and management
* Collection analysis and development
* Standards and systems of cataloging and classification,
metadata, and indexing
* Technology and providing access to electronic resources
* Licensing and legal framework
* Standards, initiatives, and best practices
* Scholarly communication

Please use the online form,, to submit a proposal
or program or idea. This Call for Proposals will close on
November 15, 2014.

Please note the following:

* The PPC welcomes proposals that are still in the formative
stages, and may work with potential presenters to focus
their proposals further.
* 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 one
to three speakers for conference sessions. Panels of four
(4) or more speakers are discouraged must be discussed in
advance with the Program Planning Committee
