It is incredible to think that NASIG’s annual conference is only about 6 weeks away. We’ll be in Asheville, North Carolina – a beautiful location for a conference – and our conference venue is right downtown near great restaurants and shopping! I love that part of the country, and actually grew up about an hour away in South Carolina. We had many family trips up to Asheville and the surrounding mountains when I was a kid. I am looking forward to spending a few days there again.
NASIG is offering some great programming this year as it always does! Serialists and e-resources folks – librarians, publishers, vendors – THIS is the conference you should attend! We’ll have everything from the ‘hands-on’ to the philsophical with sessions covering acquisitions, cataloging, collections, e-resource management, publishing & scholarly communication, and standards. There are networking opportunities galore – both formal and informal – as we gather for meals together as well as for a variety of discussion groups.
Hope to see you there!
