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.

Techniques for Tracking Perpetual Access

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

I conducted a survey in 2013 to determine whether libraries were tracking their perpetual access entitlements, but it did not thoroughly explore how librarians were managing this process. This program will build on that survey and explore specific techniques for tracking perpetual access. The session will focus on commonly used systems as identified in my survey, including integrated library systems, electronic resource management systems, OpenURL knowledgebases, and spreadsheets. The program will discuss what information should be tracked, how best to leverage different sorts of systems, and how to address challenges identified in previous research. These recommendations will be developed through correspondence and interviews with other professionals, as well as the existing literature and best practices.
