nasig day 3 & 4

I ended up having only one more chance to get online while at the conference, and that was during the closing session at Centennial Hall. It didn’t seem to be appropriate to blog while listening to the final vision session, so I decided to wait until I returned home.

NASIG 2004

I’m going to NASIG!

Today I finally registered for the NASIG 2004 conference in Milwaukee. I get reimbursed by my library after the conference, but coming up with the chunk of change needed to register before the deadline is always a bit tricky. I have my flight booked and my room reserved. Now I just need to figure out how to get from Milwaukee to Midway in Chicago on that Sunday, and I need to find a roommate, although I have a few options there.

I’m really looking forward to this conference. As a serialist, it’s probably the best conference I could attend. There are quite a few sessions on issues relating to electronic resource management, which I am very interested in. Beyond the conference program and the networking, the people that I see at the conference make NASIG special to me. I met some wonderful folks my first year attending the conference, and we’ve had lots of fun together ever since. Although in recent years, there has been a bit of a convergence in Oregon, most of us do not live in the same state. The conference is the only time we see each other, and we do a pretty good job of making up for the time and distance in between.
