Call for Conference Proceedings Recorders
Lori Terrill, Wm. Joseph Thomas, Allyson Zellner, Co-Editors

NASIG is seeking conference recorders for sessions at this year’s annual conference in Palm Springs, California.  Recorders are asked to attend specific sessions, take notes and then synthesize the notes into a readable, comprehensive report of the session for the Conference Proceedings.  For vision sessions, recorders may be asked to listen to a recording of a presentation and work with the speaker to create a report for publication in the Proceedings.

Recorders will work under the general direction of the Proceedings editors.

If you are a NASIG member with the ability to write clear, organized prose, and who is able to submit a report by Friday, July 16, 2010, please consider this opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the organization.

To apply, submit a letter of application by e-mail to:

Joseph Thomas
E-mail : thomasw@ecu.edu
Phone: (252) 737-2728
Please include the following in your application:

  • Your complete contact information (including your snail mail address, e-mail, and phone number!)
  • A list of sessions you plan to attend and are willing to record.
  • Whether you have previously served as a recorder for the NASIG Proceedings and the year(s).
  • A writing sample.  Please include the writing sample as an attachment or as a link.  The writing sample can be on any topic; it does not have to be related to librarianship.  The purpose of the writing sample is to illustrate your writing ability.  Suggested samples include journal articles, book chapters, research papers, or reports on a process, event, or meeting.  Minutes of meetings or brief book reviews are not preferred as they do not offer enough text to gauge writing style/ability.

Deadline for Applications: Friday, April 16, 2010.

Regards from the editors.
