24:3 (2009:09) President’s Corner

September 18, 2009 at 2:18 pm | Posted in President's Corner | Leave a comment

Rick Anderson, NASIG President


In many ways, 2009 is a scary time to be a serialst – but at the same time, I have to say that this is a really, really exciting time to be a member of NASIG.

We’re coming into the home stretch of our 25th year as an organization.  It’s kind of mind-boggling to think about how much our corner of the scholarly information world has changed since NASIG was organized in 1985.  Card catalogs, sending libraries massive printed renewal lists, Kardex files, doing all of our business by phone or by letter, looking up publishers’ addresses in Ulrich’s (in print, of course) – in a way all of those things sound like ancient history, but at the same time they seem to describe the way we lived just yesterday.  As crazy as it is to think about how much our work has changed in the past 25 years, what’s even crazier is to think about how much it will change over the next 25.  If only we could see forward as clearly as we can see backward!

Kurt Blythe, Columns Editor

[Note: New members, please consider reporting the story of how you came to be a member of NASIG.  You may submit items about yourself to Kurt Blythe at kcblythe@email.unc.edu.  Please include your e-mail address.]

NASIG continues to replenish itself with new members.  In fact, if any correlation may be drawn between the reporting in Title Changes and Checking In, then we can balance one retirement against thirteen new members and state emphatically that NASIG is quite healthy.  In any event, our new members may state more clearly than your humble editor what brought them to our organization.

This quarter’s introduction will be short and sweet (with “sweet” being subjective, of course).  Thanks to the authors of the below-noted works for engaging with ideas and then making the result of their labor available to us, their friends and colleagues in NASIG.

We have a retirement and three title changes this quarter, in addition to what might be considered an extracurricular title change, which I hope will serve as a lesson to the readers that “Title Changes” is a broadly-conceived column:  Please, send me all pertinent work-related changes, not just those that occur “on the clock.” Continue Reading 24:3 (2009:09) Title Changes…

May 2009


The request to translate the membership brochure was received in early December.  The work is still in process as we have had difficulty getting people to work on the documents.  We still seem to have more consistent volunteers to translate materials into French, and difficulty in finding volunteers to translate into Spanish.
