BISAC Subject Request Form

Use this form to submit requests for changes or additions to the current version of the BISAC Subject Headings.  The Committee will discuss only those suggestions that are received on a completed form.  Submission of this form in no way guarantees inclusion in a forthcoming edition of the BISAC Subject Headings. 

- Select the existing high level section in which your suggestion fits most appropriately.
- Enter the heading you are requesting.  A separate form must be submitted for each heading being requested.
- Provide 3-10 examples of titles for which the suggested heading could be used.

Is this a request for a new heading or a change to an existing heading?

If you indicated that this is a change, please provide the code and literal of the heading you are requesting a change to.
