25th Annual Conference (2010) 
PPC Update
Anne Mitchell and Morag Boyd, PPC Co-Chairs

We think the 25th annual conference in Palm Springs is shaping up to be an outstanding NASIG conference. The Program Planning Committee is working hard on the program for June’s conference, and it promises to be a great program.

As in years past, the program will offer a variety of strategy and tactics sessions to provide a wide range of both strategic and practical information in the areas of acquisitions and licensing, cataloging and access, collections, e-resource management, and publishing and scholarly communication.  This year’s preconference will focus on Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new cataloging standard and successor to AACR2.  NASIG has shifted this workshop to a later-than-usual time slot so that budget-minded travelers can arrive the morning of the preconference. Please check out the program details on the conference website (http://www.nasig.org/conference_registration.cfm) as things develop.

Would you like to get more involved while at the conference this year?  There are several opportunities for you.  Please consider submitting a proposal for a poster session or volunteering to facilitate one of the user groups or informal discussion groups.  The call for posters is here (deadline March 31), and the calls for user group and informal discussion group facilitators will be out in mid-March.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Palm Springs!
