The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) proudly announces
the birth of NASIGWeb - the new NASIG site on the World-Wide Web.
The URL for the new site is
   http://nasig.ils.unc.edu
 
NASIG is an independent organization promoting communication and sharing
of ideas among all members of the serials chain - anyone working with or
concerned about serial publications. Each June NASIG holds an annual
conference on a different college or university campus in North America.
The program includes formal papers, panels, workshops, tours and nightly
social events.  The conference proceedings are published annually and are
available both electronically (to NASIG members only) and in print.
Furthermore, in keeping with NASIG's strong commitment to continuing
education for serialists, several continuing education workshops or seminars
are offered each year.  NASIG also maintains liaison arrangements with other
organizations which have an interest in serials.  The 1996 Annual Conference
will be held at the University of New Mexico June 20-23.  A link to the
latest information about this conference will be found on the NASIGWeb site.
 
 
NASIGWeb came online in early April.  In it you'll find items such as
an online membership brochure, lists of committee and board members, citations
for the published Conference Proceedings volumes and links to other Web sites
of interest to serialists, as well as a link to information about the
1996 NASIG Conference at the University of New Mexico.  Some areas of the
Web site are limited by copyright terms to NASIG members and require a
password for access.  New links and items will continue to be added to
NASIGWeb, including the NASIG 2000 Strategic Plan and a directory of NASIG
members' talents and services.
 
You are invited to set links to to the NASIGWeb page from your own serials-
or library-related home page and bookmarks from your personal browser.
