NASIG 29th Annual Conference
Taking Stock and Taming New Frontiers
May 1-4, 2014
Ft. Worth, Texas

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.

Surviving the Winter of Our Discontent: Making the Early English Books Series Discoverable at MSU Libraries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When multiple departments at Mississippi State University began asking for titles out of the Early English Books microfilm series, it became apparent that there was a strong need for this series to be cataloged—but how? With the daunting task of cataloging thousands of reels of microfilm with numerous titles on each reel, catalogers at MSU developed a master file using MarcEditor and used batch editing to speed up the process by around 900% when compared with the cataloging time from retrieving records individually from OCLC. This poster will discuss the process and benefits of this continuing project.
