NLS Operations Alert
DATE : September 17, 2008

FROM : PCS
Subject : Update on September copy allotment
A number of network libraries have inquired about the fact that some DB titles on the
September copy allotment list do not have a counterpart RC title listed. The RC
versions of these DB titles were listed in previous copy allotments in 2008, originally
announced as commercial masters.
The digital commercial masters did not become available to NLS, so they were
reassigned to be narrated by NLS contractors and were then designated as DB titles
for the first time. It is these DB titles that are being listed now, whereas the RC versions
were listed previously.
On another copy allotment matter, NLS has noted that some network libraries have not
been adjusting their quota overage by the end of the month. All libraries are reminded
that copy allotment quotas should be corrected by the close of every monthly cycle.
