List significant activities the committee has done since last report:
OPS received one manuscript in September and another in October 2010. Both manuscripts were recommended for publication by double blind peer reviewers. In November, OPS published "A Study of Subject Service in Chinese Academic Libraries" by Yingqi Tang and Zhiping Xia (http://www.cala-web.org/files/ops/OPSNov2010No7.pdf). The second manuscript on bibliographic record analysis is in the editing phase, and is targeted for publication in January 2011. Xue-Ming Bao would like to thank the authors, reviewers and OPS editors for their time, effort and hard work during the review and editing processes. The reviewers and OPS editors were very cooperative when their assistance was requested. They provided many constructive suggestions to improve the original papers.

Xue-Ming Bao has been sending call-for-paper in the first week of each month via CALA listserv since July 2010. It seems that CALA members are responding to the calls.
