Free conference - NASIG 2020
Reposting from Eril (Electroninc Resources in Libraries) list-serv. Many of the sessions are relevant to health science librarians including working with COUNTER 5, streaming media, website accessibility, open access, authority control, and much more.
The NASIG Executive Board is pleased to
announce that we will
hold the 35th Annual NASIG Conference online, June 9-11, 2020.
We are even more pleased to announce that the conference will be free to all
attendees, thanks to the generous contributions of our sponsors.
The synchronous online
conference will include an opening session featuring vision speaker Janetta Waterhouse, along with 14 sessions originally
scheduled for the in-person conference. The full program can be found at https://nasig2020.sched.com/.
In addition to our
synchronous event, many of our other presenters will be recording their talks
for on-demand viewing. We will encourage discussion of these events on the
NASIG blog. The entire conference program will be made freely available
on YouTube after the live event.
The Board also wishes
to thank the members of our Program Planning, Conference Planning, Continuing
Education, and Communications committees, all of whom have come together to
make this event happen on a very short timeline.
Thanks also to you, our
members, for your continued support. We hope to see you online in June!
