Steve at NASIG 2019

As I begin writing this blog post about my attendance at the 2019 NASIG Conference, I can’t help but note that the conference was from June 5th through the 8th. The sharp-eyed and date-oriented among you may have quickly observed that this post is coming more than a month after said conference. For that, I... more

“Building Bridges” was the theme of the 2019 NASIG Annual Conference, and it was held- appropriately- in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the “City of Bridges.”  This theme extended deeply into the conference program, as many sessions focused on changing trends, embracing new concepts, and how libraries can respond to them. Diversity in the Spotlight This year’s conference... more

Chris at NASIG 2018 Conference

This past June, NASIG held its 33rd Annual Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.  I was a “road dog” with Steve for the weekend conference, which as always offered unique programming as it pertained to continuing resources.  The takeaways from the conference were numerous, and I grouped them into the following categories. Vision Sessions.  The Vision Sessions... more

Steve at NASIG 2018

This year’s NASIG Conference was a little unusual for me, as it was the first one since 2012 that I was able to attend like a “civilian,” with no Executive Board or program planning responsibilities requiring me to arrive early and/or stay late. Plus, I was actually able to attend a full slate of sessions!... more

Chris at NASIG 2017 Conference

Indianapolis was the site of this year’s conference, and I must admit that I was slightly hesitant about the location at first.  After all, Indianapolis isn’t one of the first locations that come to mind for a conference, library-related or not.  But Indianapolis turned out to be a very charming city with several attractions.  In... more

Chris at NASIG 2016

The 2016 NASIG Annual Conference was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in early June, and it was my first conference serving as a Member-At-Large on the Executive Committee. It was a good experience, particularly to have (then) Past President Steve Kelley also representing ZSR on the national scene. I served as the Board Liaison to... more

Steve at NASIG 2015

Okay, so by now you know what’s coming: I apologize for being so darn late in writing this blog post. I lost my notebook! The dog ate my homework! I had to see a guy about a thing! I know there’s no good excuse for writing about a conference almost two months after it happened,... more

Chris at NASIG 2015

2015 is a significant milestone for NASIG in two distinct areas: the organization celebrates its thirtieth anniversary, and the name of the organization changes from “North American Serials Interest Group” to simply “NASIG”. Both events were commemorated at this year’s conference that was held outside of Washington, D.C. with ZSR’s own Steve Kelley serving as... more

Steve at UKSG 2015

Sorry for being so late with this. April and May just ate my life. I know it’s no excuse, but it’s what I’ve got. Now, on to the post. Late last March, NASIG sent me to the UKSG Conference in Glasgow, Scotland as the president and official representative of NASIG. UKSG is the older sister... more

NASIG 2015

Last week I attended the 30th annual NASIG conference, presided over by our own Steve Kelley, who looked more and more carefree as the conference progressed and he got closer to handing over the presidential gavel. Well, at NASIG the outgoing president actually receives a gavel; the new one usually gets a hat. This was... more
