- The 2009 Proceedings are comprised of thirty-three individual papers covering all preconference, vision, strategy, and tactics sessions presented at the conference. A brief schedule regarding the editing of the 2009 papers is provided below:
- 2009 conference reports were due to the editors on July 17, 2009. The editors provided extensions to a few authors. One recorder did not supply a paper after repeated reminders. The reporter for the NASIG Newsletter who wrote a report on that session was contacted and asked to expand the paper for the Proceedings. She agreed. Additionally, approximately six weeks after the conference the editors learned that a recorder was expected for one of the vision sessions, although this was not indicated to the editors beforehand. A volunteer recorder was found who was willing to write a paper for the session using a poor quality audio recording.
- The editors used Google Docs to edit the papers and prepare them for Taylor & Francis.
- The edited papers were uploaded to Taylor & Francis’ CATS online production system in January 2010.
- The proofs were reviewed by the editors in early March 2010.
- The Proceedings were published online and in print by Taylor & Francis in April 2010 as volume 58 of the Serials Librarian. PDFs of the Proceedings were sent to the Electronic Communications Committee and have been posted on the NASIG website.
- 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.
- The complimentary copies list was compiled by the editors and submitted to Taylor & Francis in March 2010.
- The editors have completed a major revision of the Proceedings Editors’ Manual.
- Joseph Thomas from East Carolina University has been selected as the new Proceedings editor for the 2010/2011 term. He will be replacing Allyson Zellner, who rotates off prior to the 2010 conference.
- The editors have sent out a call for recorders for the 2010 conference and will be reviewing applications and making assignments in late April/early May.
