Publications Report No. 03-01

Date: January 17, 2003

Subject: Publications Order Form for Libraries

From early 2003 through 2004, NLS will again be offering
catalogs 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 these catalogs.
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
they wish.

Return the completed form to the Publications and Media
Section by January 31, 2003, in the enclosed return envelope
or fax it to (202) 707-0712.  Please be sure to transmit the
label that shows your library ID and other information.
Please do not submit this form online.

[Enclosures: This report contained print enclosures that
were mailed to the network on January 15, 2003.]
