FROM: John Bryant
Subject: Print/Braille Books
Two print/braille books, Touch the Universe and Touch the Sun, were
shipped before NLS announced them, checked them, or arranged for the book
cards. NLS has assigned book number BR 17021 to Touch the Universe and BR
17022 to Touch the Sun. Both will be announced on next month's copy
allotment and download. Be aware that the books have the following
1. There are no print labels on the books showing the book numbers.
American Printing House for the Blind (APH) added the braille labels with
the book numbers. Please label your library's copies of the books with
the appropriate numbers.
2. There were no book cards shipped with these books. Libraries should
use the annotation and other metadata that will be available with next
month's download to generate printouts if needed.
3. Touch the Sun (BR 17022) was labeled with the incorrect book number BR
12022 in braille. APH will send replacement labels to each library.
