The Awards & Recognition Committee encourages career choices and career development in the serials information chain in the following ways: awarding conference grants to students in ALA-accredited programs in library and information science; sponsoring conference attendance by those new to the field (librarian, publisher, or vendor); providing scholarships to library and information science students with prior serials experience; fostering international communication in the serials world through the awarding of grants; recognizing service to NASIG; and other special awards. The committee publicizes the competitive awards, screens applicants, selects recipients, assists with travel arrangements, and coordinates conference activities for pertinent awardees. At the recommendation of the NASIG Board, the committee is responsible for ordering and presenting both service and special awards. If you have questions you may email the Awards & Recognition Committee.
