The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) 2010
Program  Planning Committee (PPC) extends a second call for
proposals and/or  program ideas for pre-conference, vision,
strategy, and tactics  sessions. We welcome all proposals
related to serials and electronic  resources, and we are
particularly interested in the following topics  in order
to provide a diverse conference program:
    * Changes in the cataloging environment, particularly
      Resource  Description and Access (RDA)
    * Future directions for binding and other
      print-centered processes
    * On-demand and patron-driven purchasing
    * Programs reporting the findings of descriptive or
      experimental  research on serials-related topics

The Program Planning Committee will review all submitted
proposals  for their content and timeliness, and reserves
the right to combine  or refocus proposals to maximize
their relevance and to avoid duplication.

This Call for Proposals will close on November 6, 2009. PPC
hopes to notify proposers in December 2009. Inquiries may
be sent to the PPC  co-chairs, Morag Boyd and Anne Mitchell
       at: <>
