Taking Stock and Taming New Frontiers

Established in 1985, the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc. (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, information, and continuing education about serials and the broader issues of scholarly communication. NASIG welcomes anyone interested in the serials information chain. Inspired by the United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG), NASIG held its first conference at Bryn Mawr College in June 1986. The annual conference, usually held in late May or June, offers a premier opportunity to meet others representing the diverse interests of the serials community and to hear speakers who are on the cutting edge of scholarly communication.

This presentation will provide an overview of current topics in digital scholarship and scholarly communications and draw connections between these new areas and the traditional skill sets of acquisitions and electronic resources employees. Commonalities between the skills outlined in the Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians and those needed for success in digital scholarship and scholarly communications will form the basis of the presenter's recommendations for staff involvement in digital scholarship and scholarly communications.

An inventory of skills and talents among acquisitions staff will provide insight into the best ways to leverage existing human resources for the expansion of acquisitions duties into digital scholarship and scholarly communications. The presenter will outline new opportunities for acquisitions staff based on external research and internal staffing practice at the University of Montana.
