25th Annual Conference (2010) 
PPC Update
Anne Mitchell and Morag Boyd, PPC Co-Chairs

We think the 25th annual conference in Palm Springs is shaping up to be an outstanding NASIG conference. The Program Planning Committee is working hard on the program for June’s conference, and it promises to be a great program.

As in years past, the program will offer a variety of strategy and tactics sessions to provide a wide range of both strategic and practical information in the areas of acquisitions and licensing, cataloging and access, collections, e-resource management, and publishing and scholarly communication.  This year’s preconference will focus on Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new cataloging standard and successor to AACR2.  NASIG has shifted this workshop to a later-than-usual time slot so that budget-minded travelers can arrive the morning of the preconference. Please check out the program details on the conference website (http://www.nasig.org/conference_registration.cfm) as things develop. Continue Reading 25:1 (2010:03) 25th Annual Conference (2010)

24:1 (2009:03) 24th Annual Conference (2009) PPC Update: Geoffrey Bilder to be Final Vision Speaker

February 19, 2009 at 7:09 pm | Posted in Conference, Program Planning | Leave a comment

GEOFFREY BILDER TO BE 2009 VISION SPEAKER
Erika Ripley and Morag Boyd, PPC Co-Chairs

The Program Planning Committee is pleased to announce that Geoffrey Bilder will be the final vision speaker at the NASIG 2009 annual conference in Asheville, North Carolina.

Geoffrey Bilder is director of Strategic Initiatives at CrossRef, and has over 16 years experience as a technical leader in scholarly technology. He co-founded Brown University’s Scholarly Technology Group in 1993, providing the Brown academic community with advanced technology consulting in support of their research, teaching and scholarly communication. He was subsequently head of IT R&D at Monitor Group, a global management consulting firm based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. From 2002 to 2005, Bilder was chief technology officer of scholarly publishing firm Ingenta.  Just prior to joining CrossRef, he was a publishing technology consultant at Scholarly Information Strategies, where he consulted extensively with publishers and librarians on emerging social software technologies and how they may affect scholarly and professional researchers.

In his talk “What Color is Your Paratext?” Bilder will pose the question, “‘How do we judge authority in a world where content is protean, provenance is vague and identity is cheap?’ and propose some concrete steps that librarians and publishers can take in order to create a new epistemic infrastructure for identifying trustworthy content on the web.”

We look forward to this dynamic and though-provoking presentation, and hope to see you in Asheville.

24TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE (2009)
PPC UPDATE – CAROL TENOPIR TO PRESENT 2009 VISION SESSION

Erika Ripley and Morag Boyd, PPC Co-Chairs

The Program Planning Committee is pleased to announce that Carol Tenopir will deliver a vision session at the NASIG 2009 Conference in Asheville, North Carolina.

Tenopir is chancellor’s professor at the University of Tennessee, School of Information Sciences and director of the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee. She is an award-winning teacher and researcher in library and information science. Her areas of teaching and research include information access and retrieval, electronic publishing, the information industry, online resources, and the impact of technology on reference librarians and scientists. She is the author of five books and over 200 journal articles.

Tenopir’s subject will be “Measuring the Value of the Academic Library: Return on Investment and Other Value Measures.”  It will draw on her recent work on measures of cost and the multiple values of library collections and services in the United States and other countries. She says, “In the past, the value of the library to the institution was assumed. Today, libraries of all types are asked to demonstrate the value of the library to its constituents and the return that is realized from funders’ investment in the library.  Several prominent return on investment (ROI) studies have been conducted in special libraries and public libraries, but both the investments and returns are different for academic libraries. Academic libraries bring direct monetary return in helping faculty attract grant funding, in addition to many downstream returns in terms of faculty and student success and loyalty. This talk will describe a three-phase project that brings together library researchers, organizations that work with libraries, and university libraries in eight countries to explore ROI in academic libraries.”

Stay tuned for more upcoming information on this year’s great programming.  We look forward to seeing everyone in Asheville.
