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.

Cost-per-use for electronic journals has become a common standard for judging the value of individual titles, but the reports needed to make such judgments can be complex to create. Different options exist for collecting, collating and reporting the necessary data. This session will look at the costs estimated for the in-house process followed at the University of Mississippi, and how those costs in personnel time compared to pricing from outside vendors. It will also report on a survey of other libraries that use outside vendors to judge the perceived value of those services.
