The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, understanding, and sharing of ideas among all members of the serials information community.
Between February and March of 2013, CONSER/Library of Congress reached out to over 200 serials specialists from North America, Europe, and Asia with RDA CONSER Bridge Training. Using a multi-functional learning platform, CONSER established a central location to retrieve self-guided study materials, interact in discussion rooms, and find supplemental downloads, links to useful resources, and recordings of past webinars. The result is a single place where specialized learning communities in various locations and time zones can share questions, comments and concerns with one another, their trainers, and reviewers as they learn RDA. The site was used to support pre-workshop preparation for students attending face-to-face workshops and training as well as online sessions. It was used for attendees of a NASIG session in 2012, a day long face-to-face CONSER RDA Serials Bridge Workshop in 2013, and a pre-conference at NASIG 2013. The showcase for this idea will feature a demonstration of the site features with a laptop.
