[Please see also the "NASIG Awards" section in the December NASIG Newsletter issue.]

The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) is currently seeking candidates for
grants to attend the 2008 Annual Conference to be held in Phoenix, Arizona, June 5-8,
2008. NASIG is an international organization committed to promoting communication
and sharing of ideas among all people working with or concerned about serial
publications. More information about the organization is available at the NASIG Web
page http://www.nasig.org.

DESCRIPTION OF AWARD: The purpose of the NASIG Horizon Award is to
advance the serials profession by providing promising new serialists with the opportunity
to accelerate their knowledge and understanding of serials by networking and interacting
with a wide range of dedicated professionals working in all segments of the serials
information chain, including vendors, publishers, and all non-traditional serialists. The
award provides the recipient with a firsthand introduction to NASIG by sponsoring
attendance at the NASIG annual conference. NASIG will pay for all conference
registration, housing, and travel costs within North America. In addition, to encourage
active participation in NASIG, the recipient will receive a year's free membership in
NASIG and will be invited to serve on a NASIG committee the year following the award.
NASIG will give at least one Horizon Award for 2008.
