The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG), founded in 1985, holds annual conferences to promote communication among librarians, publishers, subscription agents, and others in the serials information chain. The authors used qualitative and quantitative content analysis to identify the major topics discussed at the first twenty NASIG conferences, analyze how the popularity of topics has changed over time, and compare NASIG topics to issues being discussed in the serials literature.
