2010 CONFERENCE LOCATION ANNOUNCED
Rick Anderson, Vice President/President-Elect

We are very pleased to announce that the 2010 NASIG Conference will be held in Palm Springs, California, at the beautiful Rancho Las Palmas resort. The conference will take place from June 3 through 6, 2010.

Palm Springs offers a wealth of attractions, apart from its own natural beauty and ease of access.  The city is served by an international airport and is within driving distance of several larger ones. The Rancho Las Palmas resort is nestled in a gorgeous area of the city, directly across the street from the River Center, a shopping area that includes a variety of retail shops, restaurants and a movie theater.

The NASIG Conference Planning Committee co-chairs for 2010 will be Cory Tucker of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Mike Markwith of WT Cox Subscriptions. NASIG members who live in and around Southern California, and are interested in serving on CPC, are encouraged to submit a volunteer form expressing that interest. 

For more information on Palm Springs and the Rancho Las Palmas resort, here are a few websites:

We look forwarding to seeing everyone in Asheville in a couple of months and hope you will be as excited as we are about Palm Springs in 2010!

PRESIDENT’S CORNER
Jill Emery, NASIG President

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

The NASIG Executive Board has been busy in 2009. We held our January board meeting at the University of Denver prior to the ALA Midwinter. We’d like to extend our appreciation to Michael Levine-Clark and the Penrose Library staff, who provided us with meeting space in one of their conference rooms and helped us arrange this event. We had a very full agenda and were able to make many vital decisions regarding the organization which I will describe below. Furthermore, the board has also committed to monthly phone calls between January and June to insure that all critical decisions and concerns are addressed in a timely fashion.

VENDOR EXPO PLANNED FOR 2010 CONFERENCE
Rick Anderson, Vice President/President-Elect

At the 2010 conference, NASIG is planning to institute for the first time a limited vendor exposition. The exposition will take place during a single four-hour block, at a time to be designated by the 2010 Conference Planning Committee. Anyone (including libraries or library organizations) will be allowed to purchase an exhibit table for $500. The primary purposes of instituting a limited vendor expo are these: Continue Reading 24:1 (2009:03) Vendor Expo Planned for 2010 Conference…

24:1 (2009:03) Committee Update: Publications and Public Relations

COMMITTEE UPDATE
PUBLICATIONS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE

Glen Wiley, Chair

[Ed. note: Excerpted from the January report to the Executive Board]

As part of our charge to proactively encourage publication of serials-related literature, we solicit for current topics and knowledge authors for new NASIGuides.  We have one new NASIGuide, “MARC Coding for Serials,” by Elizabeth McDonald and Beverly Geckle.  It is currently on the website, but hasn’t been publicly announced since some committee members have experienced oddities with the internal linking within the guide.  We are working on a solution. We still have several NASIGuides pending.  The potential guides are on Serials and Institutional Repositories, and FRBR Implicatons for Serials, and electronic resources workflow.

In order to meet NASIG’s obligation to provide content to the UKSG’s Serials E-News, our committee has asked all former board members back to 2003 who are still active in NASIG.  We have a few former board members that might be interested, but they are thinking of topics.  There have been two articles submitted to Serials E-News that should appear in an upcoming Serials E-News.  This is an ongoing effort.

24:1 (2009:03) Committee Update: Financial Development Committee

COMMITTEE UPDATE
FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Denise Novak, Chair

[Ed. note: Excerpted from the January report to the Executive Board]

The members of the FDC were asked to create and submit a proposal which would offer exhibits at the annual NASIG conference.  The suggestion was to “sell” tables for a specific amount of money and then have a specific time for vendors to present their products.

The committee recommends the following:

  1. Keep it low key. A table and a couple of chairs.
  2. Hold the exhibits for one day only (maximum 6 hours) during the conference.  NOT the day before.  We want people to visit the exhibits and they must be an integral part of the conference.
  3. There has to be a point to being there and an information need in order for conference attendees to show up.  This activity should contribute to the larger NASIG conference conversation.
  4. Charge the vendors $250 – $400 to start.  One committee member suggested making the exhibits a place to “be” and then if the vendors think they have to come we can charge more.
  5. No refreshments are needed, except perhaps coffee, tea and water.
  6. Make sure the showcase venue is large enough for a crowd of people.

We are not sure this is viable for the 2009 conference in Asheville. Perhaps it would be better to carefully plan something for 2010 than to push something for 2009, and come out with something that might not be as good as we’d like, and would set a low standard for future conferences. A higher standard, starting in 2010, would be better in the long run.

We also recommend that the NASIG membership be surveyed on the types of vendors they would like to see exhibit at the NASIG conference.

One committee member has issued a challenge to the board and the Conference Planning Committee to be creative and innovative – build on the Charleston model, but don’t replicate it. We want vendors to want to be there because it is meaningful, worthwhile, and yes, a little fun.

Questions/Suggestions for the board to consider:

  1. Is Internet going to be provided?
  2. Should low-tech/high tech options be offered at different prices or one average cost for both options?
  3. What about creating an afternoon/evening reception period, with vendors recognizing that some of the cost is going to wine or beer? This makes it worth attending for attendees, which makes it worth attending for vendors.
  4. A group to oversee the process and ensure that they write up at least some guidelines to minimize problems later?

DATABASE & DIRECTORY COMMITTEE

Lisa Blackwell and Bob Persing, Co-Chairs

[Ed. note: Excerpted from the January report to the Executive Board]

ACTIVITIES
During September the committee concentrated on standardizing member and organizational records in preparation for initiating invoicing. This included entering renewal dates into each member record based on financial records from last year’s renewals. Invoices have been generated the first weeks of October, November and December. The next round of invoices will be generated January 12 for those individuals due to renew their memberships in February. Routine Database & Directory Committee working procedures are still under development. Relevant documentation will be posted in the committee space after completion of a committee conference call in early February.
