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.

A lot has happened since scholarly journals made their way onto the web, about two decades ago. Increasingly the research process, not just research communication, is web-based. Articles, books are no longer the only objects relevant to research communication. Objects created and used as part of the research endeavor do not have the same sense of fixity that traditional publications had. And, machines are joining humans as creators and consumers of research objects. The presentation will observe these ongoing changes and will explore some of the possible consequences for networked, digital research communication.
