We believe you will enjoy the programs as well as special activities and souvenirs celebrating this anniversary conference. When you receive your conference booklet, please complete the Registration Request form carefully and return it to the appropriate address as soon as possible. Registration is open to NASIG members only until April 1, 1995; after that date we will also accept registration from non-members. Conference registration fees this year are $255 for double accommodation, $300 for single accommodation, and $230 for commuters. Duke Campus and its Facilities Duke University, known internationally for its academic excellence and beautiful campus, provides the perfect backdrop for the NASIG Conference. Duke is located in the city of Durham, the northern point of North Caroli- na's tri-city metropolitan area known as the "Research Triangle." Durham, famous as the "City of Medicine," is also home to North Carolina Central University. Nearby cities include Chapel Hill, where the University of North Carolina is located, and Raleigh, the state capital and site of North Carolina State University. Situated in the heart of the Piedmont region, the Triangle enjoys a moder- ate climate, with the Appalachian highlands and the Atlantic coast each only a few hours away. The Research Triangle Park, a 6,550 acre interna- tionally known complex of high-tech research and industrial facilities, links the cities and universities of the area. The presence of older cul- tural and agricultural institutions combined with the excellence in health care, education, and industry make the Triangle one of the most exciting areas of growth and development in the country, as noted recently in Money and Fortune magazines. The hub of NASIG activities will be the Bryan University Center, a modern facility including auditoriums, theatres, conference rooms, the Duke Uni- versity Store, and informal dining and conversation areas. The Rathskel- ler, on the lower level of the Bryan Center, will be open each evening for late-night indoor or outdoor socializing. Accommodation Air-conditioned sleeping rooms have been reserved in Few Quadrangle, one of the gothic-style living areas in the center of campus, and Edens Quadrangle, downhill from Few and more modern in appearance. Rooms are equipped with beds and linen (including wash cloths), desk, chest of drawers, bookcase, closet or wardrobe, and ceiling light. Baths are shared and in most cases open off the halls. Both doubles and singles are available, but there are many more doubles than singles, and we encourage you to share. One or more floors will be reserved for couples. Laundry facilities are close by. Vending machines and telephones for local, collect, or credit card calls are located in each dorm. Please note that Duke University policy prohibits children in dormitories. Check-in time is noon and check-out time is 11:00 a.m. Luggage storage is available. Extra nights, either before or after the conference, are available at the single room rate, $35.40 a night. Several hotels are in the general vicinity of the Duke West Campus, and blocks of rooms have been reserved for NASIG attendees. Those staying in one of the hotels should make their own reservations.

The Brownstone and Washington Duke are a long daylight walk from our part of the campus; walking at night is not recommended. Although the Hilton has a van service to campus, we strongly suggest that you consider hotel accommodations only if you have your own transportation.

Travel from Raleigh-Durham Airport to Duke University will be $20 per person one way, or $30 roundtrip. Reservations should be made at least two weeks in advance of arrival and should include first name, last name, flight number, and time of arrival. For setting the return time to RDU, LTD advises making sure one arrives at least an hour before departure. - Car: Duke's campus is easily accessible from both Interstate 85 (north and south) and Interstate 40 (east and west). Your registration con- firmation will contain maps and narrative instructions. Conference Dining Conference registrants will use their name tag for breakfast, lunch, and dinner "all you can eat" meal privileges. The name tag must be shown at all conference-sponsored meals. Breakfasts will be served in the Blue and White Room, an 800-seat cafeteria dining area located in the West Union Building. A wide variety of breakfast choices is featured. Lunch on Friday and Satur- day will also be served in the Blue and White Room. Lunch menus typically include sandwiches, hot entrees, salad bar, and several dessert choices. In keeping with NASIG tradition, box lunches will be provided on Sunday for all conference registrants to ensure timely attendance at post-conference tours or post-conference discussion group meetings. Dinner on Thursday will consist of a reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres (wine and non-alcoholic beverages provided), followed by a birthday cake- and-champagne celebration of NASIG's 10th anniversary. (See separate description of anniversary events for more detail.) Dinner on Friday, which is the "free evening," will be available at the Blue and White Room, or registrants may opt to dine off-campus at their own expense at one of the area's fine restaurants. A list of restaurants will be in conference packets. Saturday's informal pig pickin' at Cameron Indoor Stadium will showcase regional specialties -- pork barbeque, fried chicken, and brunswick stew -- with all the trimmings. Beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. Following the meal we have planned a presentation by Carolina Heartland Cloggers, leading to a square dance for all with Banjo in the Hollow band and a local caller. There will be a cash bar during the evening. In addition to the conference-sponsored meals, the Bryan Center offers a number of other food and beverage outlets, and dorms are equipped with vending machines. Clothing and Weather Early June weather in Durham can be warm or cool, wet or dry. Most likely it will be sunny with daytime highs in the 70s, but it's best to be pre- pared for showers and cooler weather. In keeping with NASIG tradition, casual clothing and comfortable shoes remain the recommended attire. Recreation Facilities and Fun Run/Walk Duke's excellent recreational facilities will be available to NASIG confer- ence goers. They include tennis, squash, and racquetball courts, weight room, outdoor running track, sauna, aquatic center, and the Duke golf course (fee charged for golf). Numerous jogging and nature trails run through Duke Forest. In addition, the Sarah P. Duke Gardens are located on campus and are open from 8:00 a.m. until sundown. Brochures, maps and schedules for these campus facilities will be available at the conference registration area. The Fun Run/Walk is scheduled for 6:30 - 7:30 am on Saturday and will be held on the Duke jogging trail which encircles the Duke golf course. Preconference: "Gophers and Webs: A Cyber Safari" In conjunction with the 10th annual NASIG Conference, the Electronic Com- munications Committee takes you on a safari in cyberspace. Preconference attendees will explore the pros and cons of the two basic navigational tools of the Internet: Gopher and World Wide Web. The keynote speaker, Richard W. Wiggins, will discuss each tool from the perspective of user friendliness, access to resources, maintenance, and other issues. This presentation will be followed by two breakout sessions, covering each of the tools in depth. The breakout sessions will be repeated so that all attendees may participate in both sessions. A cost recovery fee of $30 will be charged. Registration is limited to 200 persons. Friday Night Optional Activities NASIG has two planned offerings for Friday night -- or, registrants may make their own plans. Duke buses will transport conference goers to either a Durham Bulls baseball game or nearby Chapel Hill, home of the University of North Carolina. Please indicate your choice on the registration form. The world famous Durham Bulls are playing a home game on Friday night, and everyone who is a baseball fan (or just plain likes a good time!) will want to attend. NASIG will reserve a block of seats and arrange transportation to the ballpark. The Bulls are great fun, and this will be their first season in a new ballpark (no, not the movie ballpark, but an olde-tyme one like the Orioles Park at Camden Yards). Reserve your seat at the ballpark on the registration form. Play Ball! Cost is $10.00 per person for ticket and transportation. "Evening in Chapel Hill" will include a number of interesting choices, some of which are being specially arranged for NASIG. These include a show at the University of North Carolina's Morehead Planetarium (8:30 pm); a "tech- nogeek peek" at the latest in library education -- the new, state-of-the- art computer lab at UNC's School of Information and Library Science; and the wonderfully renovated Wilson Library, center of UNC's renowned special collections. Any of these options may be covered during the early evening, with plenty of time to stroll through the spacious tree-lined campus or soak up the atmosphere of Franklin Street, the social center of the "South- ern Part of Heaven." Explore funky boutiques, diverse restaurant choices, book stores, hangouts and watering holes, or music clubs. Specific informa- tion on who is playing at which club will be available at the registration desk. Cost is $5.00 for transportation. Persons attending the Planetarium show will pay $3.50 at the entrance. There are numerous other options people may wish to explore on their own -- Durham's Ninth Street neighborhood, full of interesting shops and bistros; Brightleaf Square, a tobacco warehouse turned shopping mall; as well as other cultural activities that will be happening in the area. Groups inter- ested in forming their own entertainment plans may also use this time slot. Library Tours and Exhibits Between 2:00 and 4:00 pm on Thursday, June 1, librarians at Duke's Perkins Library and its Medical Library will be available to lead tours of their facilities. Sunday Tours - Capital City Sampler: Historic Raleigh. See the historic heart of North Carolina's capital city. Stops include Mordecai Historic Park, the State Capitol Building, North Carolina Museum of History, and the Executive Mansion, home to the state's Governor. Minumum 25 persons. Price: $25.00. - Research Triangle Park Special Libraries. A tour of select compa- nies doing some of today's most cutting-edge research! Includes Glaxo Phar- maceutical, the North Carolina Microelectronics Center, Burroughs-Wellcome Co., and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Minumum 10 persons. Cost: $10.00 transportation. - Durham History Tour. Includes Duke Homestead and Tobacco Museum, Bennett Place (Civil War Site), and the North Carolina Museum of Life and Science. Minumum 20 persons. Cost: $20.00. All tours will begin at 1:00 pm and will end by 6:00 pm. Conference goers with evening flights may take either the Raleigh or Research Triangle tour and be dropped off at the airport before 6:00. Luggage may be left on the buses; the driver stays with the bus. Conference Phone Numbers The NASIG office will be open during the day for emergency calls. That telephone number and the after-hours number will be included with your registration confirmation. Day Care Arrangements NASIG is unable to provide day care, but we plan to have a list of names and phone numbers to send upon request. Please note that Duke University policy prohibits children in dormitories. Direct your inquiries to Elaine Teague at email@example.com or phone 919 315-4262. NASIG is not responsible for the service provided.

Registrants can purchase additional meal tickets and make extra tour and "free evening" reserva- tions by indicating their needs on the Registration Form. All guest meal tickets must be purchased in advance. Registration will be confirmed upon receipt of payment.
