IPSWICH, Mass. / BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — May 13, 2013 — EBSCO is pleased to announce that Shannon Regan, licensed content librarian at Mercer University in Macon, Ga., has been awarded the 2013 North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) Horizon Award. The award, sponsored by EBSCO, recognizes a promising new information professional; it covers the cost of travel, registration, and lodging for three nights while the recipient attends the NASIG Annual Conference in Buffalo, N.Y., June 6–9.
Each year, the Horizon Award gives a first-time NASIG conference attendee the opportunity to advance within his or her profession by networking with other attendees from a wide range of fields within the serials information chain, including vendors, publishers, and non-traditional serialists. The award encourages continued participation in NASIG conferences and events, and also includes a one-year membership to NASIG.
Applicants must be first-time attendees of the NASIG Annual Conference and hold a position working with some aspect of serials within the information profession. This year's applicants submitted essays addressing the 2013 NASIG conference theme: ""The Art of Information/The Architecture of Knowledge."
Regan is excited to attend the 2013 NASIG Annual Conference. "I am excited and grateful for the opportunities provided through receiving the NASIG Horizon Award. I look forward to attending the NASIG conference, meeting new serials professionals and working within this great community."
EBSCO, which has helped to sponsor NASIG conferences and events for more than 10 years, is participating in the Vendor Expo at the 2013 NASIG Annual Conference on Thursday, June 6.
