To advance the profession by providing mid-career information professionals with the opportunity to share their understanding and accelerate their knowledge of information resource management (e.g., serials and/or e-resources acquisitions, resource metadata and discovery, scholarly communications, collections management, digital publishing, e-resource or serials sales, scholarly publishing, or knowledgebase management) by networking and interacting with a wide range of dedicated professionals working in all segments of the information supply chain; including librarians, vendors, publishers, and other non-traditional serialists.
Birdie MacLennan is remembered by almost everyone who has ever worked with serials in a professional capacity as the Listowner & Moderator for SERIALST, the unique forum for discussion of serials in libraries since October 1990. As the guiding hand behind this resource, Birdie shaped the landscape for serials management throughout the crucial internet era; a time when the most change occurred in the field since the founding of the first scholarly journals in the 17th Century. She gave generously of her time and experience with colleagues near and far, and was full of humor and good spirit. Throughout her career she was a friend and fan of the NASIG organization, volunteering in many roles. NASIG benefited immeasurably from the life of Birdie MacLennan, one of the foremost librarians of her generation.
