Subject : DTBM Distribution Best Practice
The following notice is submitted in keeping with the NLS commitment to sharing
network-library best practices in digital talking-book machine (DTBM) distribution.
Kathleen Kappell, regional librarian of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Library for the
Blind and Physically Handicapped, has been contacting patrons by postcard to publicize the
DTBM. The strategy has successfully generated a high level of interest in the new machines,
and many patrons have contacted the library to order their own DTBMs. An accessible PDF of
the postcard is attached.
