Index term: Interim individual application
Enclosed is the revised NLS interim individual application. The
application has been restructured so that only the first two pages need to
be retained by network libraries and machine-lending agencies (MLAs).
This application has also dropped the option of "books recorded on discs."
Facts: Playback Machines and Accessories Provided on Free Loan to Eligible
Individuals and Institutions, an insert included with each application,
has also had references to record players eliminated.
A Spanish language version of this application and factsheet are being
developed, and NLS will notify the network when they are available.
Libraries may request copies of the new interim individual application
(stock number FR 101) from their multistate centers. This stock number
incorporates both the application and the player factsheet. The interim
application will replace the current application on www.loc.gov/nls.
NLS is also developing another individual application that will include
choices for digital talking books along with the selection of a standard
or advanced digital player. NLS will inform the network when the new
application, which will replace the attached, is available. This
application will also be produced in Spanish.
