Publication Report no. 09-02
Date: October 23, 2009
Subject: Patron Publications Order Form
During the next several weeks, patrons will receive large-print or braille order
forms for catalogs that will be produced in 2010-2011. We request that each
patron fill out and return the order form within three weeks of receiving it. A copy
of the contents of each order form is attached for your information and to help you
answer patron questions. Please do not take patron orders over the telephone or
by e-mail. The CMLS contractor needs to receive directly the large-print or
braille order form with the patron ID on it in order to accurately input the request.
If patrons who have lost their order forms or return envelopes contact you, please
notify Paula Higgins by e-mail at [log in to unmask] or phone (202) 707-9278.
Ms.Higgins will need the name, address, and telephone number of the patron in order
to replace the missing items.
Please do not use the attached informational copies to place orders for your
library. Library order processes are automated. Network libraries are
encouraged to update their first class (F/C) and bulk quantities and review their
standing orders for regularly recurring publications on a quarterly basis. Refer to
Network Bulletin 06-29 for details and instructions.
The CMLS codes for publications that patrons order will appear on your library's
CMLS records. After each publication is mailed, its codes will be deleted from the
records by the CMLS contractor. Transactions to add or delete these publications
will appear on your library's edit/update report.
