General Information

NASIG has a code of conduct for all conference participants.  This conference will be an in-person event with in-person presenters.  A virtual conference will be held at a different time of year and may have different content.  More information about the virtual conference will be announced soon.


It would be great if you could make sure your bio on SCHED is current and to use a picture of some sort (it doesn’t need to be of you - but it would be nice to see more than simply a name). You can do this either by logging into Sched to edit your profile or you can send this to your PPC contact.  SCHED will be available to speakers in Spring 2023, your liaison will let you know when to update your profile.


Send your slides to either your Program Planning Committee (PPC) contact or add them to SCHED. 

Conference Handouts/Presentation Materials

Please note, speakers are required to provide a final copy of any presentation slides for loading into the NASIG SlideShare account.

NASIG will be using a SlideShare account to allow for cloud storage of speakers presentations and to manage conference handouts. Attendees will be directed to the conference SlideShare page to download handouts and presentation materials. Speaker presentations and handouts are to be e-mailed to the Communications Committee (CC) at web@nasig.org for them to upload the materials to the NASIG Slideshare site. Speakers are encourage to submit their slides prior to the conference. If slide presentations are sent during the conference itself, CC will be uploading the presentations as quickly as possible. Slides should be submitted by May 15, 2023.

Though we are not requiring speakers to use this version of the presentations when you actually present, we strongly invite all to do so. For some guidelines in formatting a SlideShare presentation, please see the following:

Please particularly consider accessibility of your presentations, including color contrast and text size. Posting your presentation ahead of time is another way to make your presentation more accessible to all attendees. Please also be sure to properly credit any images and make your own rights clear. You may wish to add a Creative Commons license to increase its ability to be shared.

Send your presentation materials as attachments to web@nasig.org. In the body of the email, include the title of your presentation and the names of the presenters as well as any URLs if you are using a website instead of a document as your handout. In order to assist CC in organizing the presentations, please begin all presentation titles with "nasig2023".

Your materials will be freely accessible to everyone; they will not be restricted to NASIG members and conference attendees. If you have questions, please contact CC at web@nasig.org.

Conference Proceedings 

All presentations at the conference will be included in the proceedings. When filling out your Memorandum of Understanding (due by February 20, 2023), you can choose to write your own paper for the proceedings or to have the proceedings editors assign a recorder who will write the paper in consultation with you. If you are not the only speaker for your session, please be sure to communicate with your co-presenters when deciding who will be writing the paper.

The conference proceedings will be published Open Access in NASIG Proceedings on the Michigan Publishing Services platform as a standalone publication.  It will no longer be published as a special issue of the Serials Librarian, but previous proceedings through 2021 will be available via Open Access on the Taylor & Francis platform as special issues of the Serials Librarian.  Authors will be asked to sign a NASIG Proceedings Article Publishing Agreement. More information about submitting a Proceedings paper can be found in the FAQs for NASIG Vision Speakers & Presenters.

The proceedings editors have developed Conference Proceedings Author Guidelines for your reference.

The deadline for submitting your paper is will be 6 to 8 weeks post-conference.  Please contact proceedings@nasig.org if you have further questions.
