December 18, 2009 at 4:41 pm | Posted in Publications/PR | Leave a comment

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

Publications and Public Relations
Kathryn Johns-Masten and Wm. Joseph Thomas, Co-Chairs

Continuing Activities

Marilyn Carney continues to serve admirably as NASIG Publicist, and is joined by new member Betsy Appleton as publicist-in-training.  The publicist has been sending announcements and   will continue to update the Publicist’s Manual as needed.

We continue to send out solicitations for new NASIGuides in partial fulfillment of our charge to encourage the publication of new serials-related literature.  The September Newsletter includes a call for new NASIGuides: see https://nasignews.wordpress.com/2009/09/15/243-200909-pubpr-seeking-new-nasiguide-authors/.  Among ideas for new Guides are these topics: pricing models, claiming workflows, FRBR implications for serials, and electronic resources workflow, but we are also willing to consider suggestions for appropriate new topics.   

The committee will continue to seek NASIG members who are willing to submit new entries in the Speakers and Consultants Directory, to serve as potential speakers for meetings or consultants to assist anyone in need of specialized expertise in aspects of serials librarianship.  

Completed Activities

The committee co-chairs have submitted to the board drafts of the Publicist’s Manual and of a NASIG Publicity Guide for Committees, containing two templates: Event Guide and Policy Change Announcement.

We have uploaded one revised NASIGuide, “Title Changes.”

Marilyn Carney, NASIG Publicist, has continued to publicize NASIG-related announcements, like the upcoming 25th annual NASIG conference, new ALPSP workshops, and others.
