NASIG 30th Annual Conference
NASIG at 30: Building the Digital Future
May 27-30, 2015
Washington, D.C.

The 2015 Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites proposals
for conference sessions. Publishers, vendors, librarians,
and others in the fields of electronic resources and serials
are encouraged to submit proposals relating to scholarly
communication, publishing, resource acquisition, management,
and discovery. Proposals based on emerging trends, case
studies, and descriptive and experimental research findings
are encouraged.

This is the 30th year of the NASIG conference, and we are
particularly interested in proposals that look at historic
trend analysis of the serials industry over the past 30
years, as well as visions of the future of the industry
based on our history.

As we have in recent years, the PPC specifically welcomes
programs focusing on the Core Competencies that the NASIG
Core Competency Task Force developed for Electronic
Resources Librarians. Please refer to the Core Competencies,
http://bit.ly/1ovwjkk.

Program topics from the Core Competencies:
 Electronic resource life cycle and management
 Collection analysis and development
 Standards and systems of cataloging and classification,
metadata, and indexing
 Technology and providing access to electronic resources
 Licensing and legal framework
 Standards, initiatives, and best practices
 Scholarly communication

Please use the online form,
http://proposalspace.com/calls/d/392, to submit a proposal
or program or idea. This Call for Proposals will close on
November 15, 2014.

Please note the following:

 The PPC welcomes proposals that are still in the
formative stages, and may work with potential presenters to
focus their proposals further.
 Proposals should name any particular products or
services that are integral to the content of the
presentation. However, as a matter of NASIG policy, programs
should not be used as a venue to promote or attack any
product, service, or institution.
 Time management issues generally limit each session to
one to three speakers for conference sessions. Panels of
four (4) or more speakers are discouraged must be discussed
in advance with the Program Planning Committee

 Please refer to the NASIG reimbursement policy,

Understanding (MOU) prior to speaking at the conference.
