Network Bulletin No. 98-41
Date: July 2, 1998
Index term: Twelve flexible-disc titles transferring to
cassette in 1999
NLS will continue to transfer audio magazines from flexible-
disc to cassette format in 1999. The following twelve
magazines will be produced only on cassette beginning with
the first issue of 1999:
Computer Life (monthly)
Consumer Reports (monthly)
Eating Well (bimonthly)
Good Housekeeping (monthly)
The New York Times Book Review (weekly)
Stereo Review (monthly)
Travel Holiday (monthly)
Working Woman (monthly)
These changes will be announced at the national consumer
conventions in early July. NLS will also notify patrons in
the September-October and succeeding issues of Talking Book
Topics and Braille Book Review. In addition, we will add an
announcement of the change in format to the magazines
themselves beginning in September for bimonthlies, in
October for monthlies, and in November for weeklies.
Network libraries will be notified as the changes occur.
CMLS will send a report listing subscribers to each magazine
and the old and new CMLS codes so that network libraries can
make the appropriate changes in their local systems.
NLS plans to continue the transition in 2000 with an
additional ten or eleven titles moving to cassette and to
conclude in 2001 when all remaining flexible-disc titles
will be transferred to cassette.
