  • Currently, we are collecting the rest of the 2008 conference papers. Virginia has been indispensable in a few cases. We are planning on uploading the draft papers into Google Docs for initial edits in preparation for sending the papers to Taylor & Francis by December 1. Taylor & Francis has a much shorter production cycle than the one we had with Haworth. We will review proofs in early February with a planned publication date in April or May. This will ensure that copies of the Proceedings are available at next year’s conference.
  • For the 2008 conference, CPC continued its use of a cassette recorder to record the Vision sessions for the reporters. For the 2009 conference, we have asked CPC to include a line for a digital audiorecorder in its 2009 budget request.
  • We had a complication due to the fact that the presenters for one strategy session signed and returned NIH copyright cover forms instead of the NASIG forms. The board accepted them for the 2008 Proceedings but asked that we revise the NASIG copyright form to include an exception in cases where an author’s institution or place of employment requires retention of copyright.
  • The 2007 conference Proceedings were published by Taylor & Francis as volume 54, no. 1-4 of The Serials Librarian in late May. PDFs were collected and added to the new NASIG website by the Electronic Communications Committee in early August. They are available at: http://www.nasig.org/conference_proceedings/2007.cfm.
  • We have confirmed with Taylor & Francis the following complimentary copies list for the conference proceedings:
    • Presenters and recorders get 3 copies
    • Editors get 3 copies
    • NASIG board members get 1 copy
    • NASIG archivist gets 1 copy
    • NASIG Program Planning Committee members get 1 copy
  • Related to the above item, we submitted to Katy Ginanni, ASTF chair, that we would like to see the new administrative support person, if hired, help the committee in producing the complimentary copies list for Taylor & Francis as this task primarily involves collecting names and addresses.
