North Carolina Serials Conference

Chris at the 26th Annual North Carolina Serials Conference

The 26th Annual North Carolina Serials Conference has the theme “Being Data-Informed: Taking Control and Connecting Users to Content,” and the portions about connections held a specific resonance with me this year.  As always, the conference was a draw for serialists, library school students, and publishers for a day of programming for those who work... more

Chris at the 2016 North Carolina Serials Conference

Several weeks ago, I attended the 2016 North Carolina Serials Conference in Chapel Hill with Steve Kelley. This year is also the conference’s 25th anniversary, and it was celebrated in with a formal program during the lunchtime banquet. Several individuals were recognized for their work that established the conference as well as for their leadership... more

Derrik at the NC Serials Conference, 2015 edition

Well, the latest few PD blog posts have guilted me into finally writing about my trip to the 2015 NC Serials Conference. Now, if I can just find my notes … Aha! Here we are. Steve’s post already covered Katherine Skinner’s opening keynote address quite well. I’ll add an “Aha” moment I had. Do you... more

Steve at the 2015 NC Serials Conference

Sorry, I’m so late in writing about a conference that happened on March 6th, but the month of March and the first half of April pretty much ate my life. Anyway, Chris, Derrik and I drove to the conference, which started late due to a weather delay caused by a slight ice event (remember how... more

Chris at the 2015 NC Serials Conference

After a delay caused by the threat of icy weather (which didn’t quite materialize), Derrik, Steve and I made the voyage on Friday, March 6 to Chapel Hill for the 24th Annual North Carolina Serials Conference. The conference itself had a later starting time and had amended session times, but it still ran smoothly without... more

Chris at the 2014 NC Serials Conference

On March 14, I attended the twenty-third annual North Carolina Serials Conference. As in previous years, it was an excellent conference that brought together representatives from both libraries and library vendors to talk about current ideas and emerging technologies. In recent years, however, the broadening of the definition of what is a serial has grown... more

Two Thoughts from the NC Serials Conference

I also attended the North Carolina Serials Conference last month. Since several other ZSR bloggers have already reported, I will focus on two ideas put forward during a late-morning plenary session, which featured David Crotty again. Crotty remarked that the paper announcing the cure is not as important as the actual cure. We might make... more

Jeff at 2014 NC Serials Conference

On March 14, 2014 I attended the 23rd Annual North Carolina Serials Conference in Chapel Hill, having carpooled with Derrik, Chris, and Steve, and meeting Carol and Ellen there. In addition to these worthy colleagues I actually ran into someone whom I know from App State. This was my first un-orchestrated North Carolina librarian encounter.... more

Steve at 2014 North Carolina Serials Conference

I attended the 2014 North Carolina Serials Conference last week, with quite a crew from ZSR. Ellen has already discussed the all-conference sessions, so I think I’ll write a bit about the break-out sessions I attended. The update session on RDA had some bits of news that might be of interest to folks outside of... more

NC Serials Conference 2014 (Ellen D.)

I attended the 23rd annual North Carolina Serials conference in Chapel Hill on March 14, presented by the NCCU School of Library and Information Sciences. The keynote address, “Altmetrics: Finding Meaningful Needles in the Data Haystack,” was a fast-paced and informative presentation by David Crotty, Senior Editor at Oxford University Press. Arguing that we do... more
