Machines and Accessories Report 06-07
Date: November 17, 2006
Subject: Machine-repair annual statistics report
NLS requests that machine-lending agencies (MLAs) and network libraries provide
information about the number of machine repairs they coordinated during fiscal year
2006. This information is used in developing the NLS machine-repair budget.
Each MLA and network library must complete the report in the Network Library
Database by December 4, 2006.
To access the Network Library Database, log onto the Network Library Services
web site at www.loc.gov/pics using your administrative ID and password. The
Network Library Database is the eighth link on the menu. Link to "Cassette Book
Machine Repairs" and follow the prompts. A replica of the screen is attached.
Libraries that are not involved with equipment repair should check the box at the
top of the screen for "No repair activities during FY 2006" and then click the
Submit button at the bottom of the screen.
Separate reports must be submitted to the database from all network libraries and
MLAs that coordinate repairs. To assure the accuracy of the reporting through the
database, each regional library that is not a MLA and each subregional library that
coordinates repairs should consult with their MLAs to minimize duplication.
MLAs also have access to the Repair screen for libraries in their service area and
can submit repair information for them, if the libraries agree.
