NASIG Transforming the Information Community

Vendor & Publisher Engagement Task Force


During the two year term, June 2019-June 2021: 

  • Determine if a permanent committee is needed; if so, recommend a committee name, a final committee charge, and establish a guiding document for the work of the committee.
  • Implement the Key Actions listed in the NASIG Strategic Plan, 2017-2021.
  • Set up jointly-run NASIG and vendor webinars to highlight or demo a product or service, to be presented without charge to the attendees.
  • Create a workflow to solicit and publish customer reviews of products, either on the website or in the Newsletter (product spotlight).
  • Set aside time in the conference schedule for user groups/focus groups and/or juried product forums for vendors. This could also be done in an online format.
  • Market our value to the vendors and make sure they understand what NASIG is and does.
  • Proactively reach out to the commercial sector when we have relevant programmatic content that matches their interests to improve the vendor-librarian dialogue.
