The 2015 Program Planning Committee (PPC) has extended the
deadline for proposals for conference sessions to November

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.

As we have in recent years, the PPC specifically welcomes

Core Competency Task Force developed for Electronic
Resources Librarians. Please refer to the Core Competencies,

Program topics from the Core Competencies:

metadata, and indexing

    Technology and providing access to electronic resources

    Licensing and legal framework

    Standards, initiatives, and best practices

Please use the online form - - 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
