                         NASIG CONFERENCE GRANT AWARDS

 The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) is an independent
 organization bringing together many segments of the serials information chain
 to study and explore common interests, problems, and ideas. NASIG is currently
 seeking candidates for grants to attend its Seventh Annual Conference to be
 held at the University of Illinois at Chicago, June 18 to 21, 1992. Through
 the granting of these awards, NASIG desires to encourage participation in this
 information chain by students who are interested in some aspect of serials
 work upon completion of their professional degree.

 submit a brief written report to NASIG. Expenses for travel, registration,
 meals and lodging will be paid by NASIG.

 order to accept an award, a recipient must not be employed in a position
 requiring an ALA-accredited degree, nor on leave from such a position, at the

 qualified applicants, with preference given to those graduating the year of
 the conference.
