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.

Taming Print Journal Collections... To Boldly Weed Where No One Has Weeded Before

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

Over the past few years, Bucknell University’s Bertrand Library has made many changes to evolve our services, physical library space, and collections in response to changing expectations and needs of our researchers.  Our Collection Development team was charged with a task to develop a plan that would holistically examine our print journal collection and forecast what would be required for a single-effort de-accessioning project, aiming to weed our print journal collection by 50% or more.  I will present our planning process, criteria, and grand reconceptualization for the space.
