NASIG 25th Annual Conference

An Oasis in Shifting Sands: NASIG at 25
June 3-6, 2010
Palm Springs, California
The 2010 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals
and/or program ideas for pre-conference, vision, strategy,
and tactics sessions. The Program Planners are interested in
hearing from publishers, vendors, librarians, and others in
the field of serials and electronic resources about issues
relating to scholarly communication, publishing, licensing,
and cataloging. Proposals based on both descriptive and
experimental research findings are especially welcome. The
Program Planning Committee will review all submitted
proposals for their content and timeliness and may work with
potential presenters to blend or refocus proposals to
maximize their relevance to attendees and avoid duplication.

This Call for Proposals will close on September 25, 2009.
The Program Planning Committee hopes to notify applicants of
the status of their proposals in December 2009.
 
Inquiries may be sent to the PPC co-chairs, Morag Boyd and
