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.

Actions and Updates on the Standards and Best Practices Front

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

This program will provide an update on several NISO projects potentially of interest to serials librarians, including PIE-J (Presentation and Identification of E-Journals), ODI (Open Discovery Initiative), KBART (KnowledgeBases and Related Tools), and OAMI (Open Access Metadata and Indicators). The projects are at different stages in their creation, publication and revision lifecycles, but all require community understanding and input. Participants will receive practical information on how the initiatives affect their daily work and how their experiences can shape the creation and uptake of consensus-based community standards in the library and information industry.
