2. SUL PARTICIPANTS IN NORTH AMERICAN SERIALS INTEREST GROUP (NASIG) ANNUAL CONFERENCE

NASIG's 14th Annual Conference was held June 18-21 in Boulder, Colorado. Christa Easton co-presented the workshop "Dear Abby: Practical Advice for the Serials World" with Tina Feick (Blackwell's) and Laura Parker (Academic Press). This open forum session invited attendees to discuss their serials troubles and present them to a panel of representative experts.

Michele Seikel, the ordering specialist in our Serials Department, was a NASIG Student Grant Winner; the grant supported her attendance at the conference. She and five other library school students were recognized for their potential in the field of serials.
