[Ed. note:  The following is excerpted from the fall report to the Executive Board.]

Allyson Zellner and Lori Terrill, Co-Editors

  • We have collected most of the 2009 conference papers and copyright forms.  We are using Google Docs again this year for editing the papers and will upload them into CATS, Taylor & Francis’ online manuscript program, after our edits are complete.
  • For the 2009 conference, CPC continued its use of a cassette recorder to record the vision sessions for the reporters.  Unfortunately the sound quality was poor and we have included a line in our 2010 budget request for a digital audio-recorder.
  • This year there was some confusion regarding reporters for the NASIG Newsletter and recorders for the Conference Proceedings.  It needs to be made clear to both newsletter reporters and speakers that the report for the NASIG Newsletter is not the same thing as the paper required for the Conference Proceedings.
  • A couple of authors expressed the desire to retain copyright to their papers.  After discussions with Taylor & Francis and the NASIG Board, these authors were given the option to sign a form retaining their copyright, but allowing for publication in the Serials Librarian.  Permission was requested to post the papers to the NASIG website.
