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.
