PUB/PR SEEKING NEW NASIGUIDE AUTHORS

Have you setup a new workflow?  Interested in helping your fellow serials folks learn about FRBR?  Please consider writing a NASIGuide!

The Publications and Public Relations Committee is looking for a few good people who want to write NASIGuides.  Current guides and some suggested topics can be found here: http://www.nasig.org/publications_guides.cfm Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Electronic Resource Workflow
  • FRBR Implications for Serials
  • Claiming Workflows
  • Pricing Models
  • Counter Statistics/Collecting Usage Statistics and Workflow
  • Information to Provide for a Serials Review

We welcome other topic ideas.  Send questions and ideas to Kathryn Johns-Masten (kathryn.johnsmasten@oswego.edu) or Joseph Thomas (thomasw@ecu.edu).

PUBLICATIONS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE

NARRATIVE OF ACTIVITIES

CONTINUING ACTIVITIES
In order to meet NASIG’s obligation to provide content to the UKSG’s Serials E-news, our committee has asked authors of NASIGuides and of particularly good articles in the NASIG Newsletter to grant permission for them to be published by UKSG as well.  However, we did not get too many contributors.  Also, our committee asked all former board members back to 2003 who are still active in NASIG.  We had a few former board members that might be interested, but none of them have produced articles yet.   This is an ongoing effort.

COMMITTEE UPDATE
PUBLICATIONS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE

Glen Wiley, Chair

[Ed. note: Excerpted from the January report to the Executive Board]

As part of our charge to proactively encourage publication of serials-related literature, we solicit for current topics and knowledge authors for new NASIGuides.  We have one new NASIGuide, “MARC Coding for Serials,” by Elizabeth McDonald and Beverly Geckle.  It is currently on the website, but hasn’t been publicly announced since some committee members have experienced oddities with the internal linking within the guide.  We are working on a solution. We still have several NASIGuides pending.  The potential guides are on Serials and Institutional Repositories, and FRBR Implicatons for Serials, and electronic resources workflow.

In order to meet NASIG’s obligation to provide content to the UKSG’s Serials E-News, our committee has asked all former board members back to 2003 who are still active in NASIG.  We have a few former board members that might be interested, but they are thinking of topics.  There have been two articles submitted to Serials E-News that should appear in an upcoming Serials E-News.  This is an ongoing effort.

NARRATIVE OF ACTIVITIES SINCE THE ANNUAL REPORT

CONTINUING ACTIVITIES
Kathryn Johns-Masten, our committee’s co-chair, makes ongoing changes to the Speakers and Consultants Directory when requested by NASIG members.  Last year, our committee reworked the submission form, changed the order and naming of the profile fields, resolved some inconsistencies, removed old members’ entries, and resolved problems with the user input/update form.  I am planning on having the committee send out more general requests for participants through out the year such as announcement in the “What’s New” section of the NASIG website.

23:3 (2008:09) Publicist Duties Shift

PUBLICIST DUTIES SHIFT TO PUB/PR COMMITTEE
Rick Anderson, Publications/Public Relations Board Liaison

Now that the NASIG Past President is charged primarily with securing organizational sponsorships, the role of NASIG Publicist will be filled by a member of the Publications/Public Relations Committee.  The publicist manages and distributes publicity items about NASIG to publications, listervs and other outlets, helping to ensure that timely and accurate information goes where it will most effectively help NASIG achieve its goals.

We are pleased to announce that Marilyn Carney, serials services librarian at Wake Technical Community College, has agreed to serve a one-year term as the NASIG Publicist, effective immediately.  Her email address is mmcarney@waketech.edu.  Our thanks to Marilyn for her willingness to fill this important role!

23:2 (2008:06) New NASIGuide Now Available

NEW NASIGUIDE NOW AVAILABLE
Glen Wiley, Co-chair, Publications/PR Committee

A new NASIGuide on A Beginner’s Guide to Working with Vendors by Wm. Joseph Thomas is now available.

Wm. Joseph Thomas writes:

“This guide will provide an overview of the varieties of relationships with vendors, issues with communication, product knowledge, licensing and negotiating, ongoing service responsibilities by both librarian and vendor, and ethics. Many of the principles in this guide may be applied to a variety of people from whom libraries purchase resources, and may refer to serials subscription agents, database providers, consortium partners who negotiate with resource providers, even at times publishers’ agents. This guide is focused rather on librarians’ and vendors’ ‘mutually beneficial goals and aspirations’ to provide resources to library users, and will not explicitly address evaluating vendors.”

Wm. Joseph Thomas is an Electronic Resources Librarian at Cornell University Library, Ithaca, New York. He may be contacted via email at: wjt42@cornell.edu.

Other useful NASIGuides are available at http://www.nasig.org/publications_guides.cfm. Several other NASIGuides are currently in the works and should be ready before the Phoenix conference, including The CONSER Standard Record, How to Survive as a New Serialist, Institutional Repositories, and MARC Fields for Serials. If you are interested in writing a NASIGuide on a pertinent topic to serials, please contact me at gsw55@cornell.edu.

PROFILES: PUBLICATIONS AND PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE
Susan Davis, Profiles Editor

I selected the Publications and Public Relations Committee for this issue’s profile for several reasons. Many NASIG committees are extremely busy as the annual conference rapidly approaches and would not have time to respond to my questions, and I hoped this group’s work was not so conference cycle-oriented. The other is that in its present form this is a relatively new committee, which I wanted to learn more about. Thanks to co-chairs Marit Taylor and Glen Wiley for agreeing to be profiled!
