NLS Operations Alert
DATE : January 6, 2010
TO : Network Libraries
FROM : Deborah Toomey
Subject : Proposed Network Library Manual distribution
NLS is considering discontinuing paper distribution of Network Library Manual (NLM) entries.
The online version of the NLM at www.loc.gov/nls/nlm will become the official manual. Network
libraries will be notified via network bulletin or operations alert when an NLM entry has been
reviewed or updated.
Before finalizing this decision, NLS is requesting input from network libraries. Please send your
comments to Deborah Toomey, head of the NLS Network Services Section, at [log in to unmask] If
you believe that paper entries for the print NLM should be continued, please be sure to respond.
Responses are due by January 15, 2010.
