Machines and Accessories Report  No. 02-07



Date: June 28, 2002


Subject:  CBM identification label requests


The three-year supply of self-adhesive chrome cassette-
machine identification labels (first announced in Network
Bulletin 98-49) that NLS supplied to machine-lending
agencies (MLAs) with Machines & Accessories 99-04 is
exhausted.  It is now time for participating MLAs to
reorder.  The 2" x 4" labels are printed in black fourteen-
point type on a brushed-silver foil background.  To order
your labels, complete the attached form or visit
<http://www.loc.gov/nls/cbmlabel.html> to complete the CBM
Label Request Form online.

__Instructions__

In states where sublending agencies (SLAs) exist, note only
the MLA name and telephone number(s); omit the MLA's mailing
address.  (Machines move among SLAs so frequently that it is
more efficient to provide a single point of contact for
all machines.)

Example:

__Property of U.S. Government__
To return, please contact:
Georgia Library for the Blind
and Physically Handicapped
(404) 756-4619    1-800-248-6701

The MLA will supply the appropriate SLA address to anyone
who calls the number(s) on the label and thus prevent SLA-
inventoried machines from being shipped to the MLA.

In areas where no SLAs exist, provide both the MLA's address
and telephone number(s).  Any MLA whose address or telephone
number changes within the distribution period may obtain
replacement labels directly from the manufacturer.

Example:

__Property of U.S. Government__
To return, please contact
Oregon Talking Book and Braille Service
250 Winter Street NE
Salem, OR  97301-3950


NLS plans to ship labels to participating libraries before
the end of 2002.  Please fax the attached order form and
return by July 19, 2002, to (202) 707-0712 or e-mail your
preferences to <[log in to unmask]> whether or not your MLA wishes
to receive NLS-supplied labels.
