Publications Report No. 97-09
Date: September 26, 1997
Subject: Publications quantities
Later this year and in 1998, NLS will again be offering
catalogs and bibliographies of recorded and braille books.
The attached survey gives you the opportunity to order an
adequate number of copies of each publication. In addition,
we are asking you to review the number of continuing
publications you receive on a subscription basis. The
information we receive from you will be entered into the
CMLS library database. Refer to the attached printout for
quantities of continuing publications you currently receive.
Patrons are being sent their order forms for catalogs and
bibliographies. Their requests are being entered into CMLS
so that their orders will be filled automatically when the
publications are ready. New patrons and those who did not
receive the catalogs in the past will need to request these
items from their libraries, so libraries should order enough
to handle their requests.
Each regional and subregional library is receiving this
order form. Regionals may coordinate with subregionals if
Return the completed forms to the Publications and Media
