         __ Creating an Annotation: A Manual on Writing and Editing Annotations
         __ has been revised and is being reissued.  First published in 1979 as a guide for
         NLS staff who write and edit book announcements to inform patrons about
         selections available from the NLS collection, the manual provides guidelines for a
         consistent approach to style and presentation of content.  The revised edition
         includes new material about treatment of bibliographic information and formal
         elements of style.  A copy is included for your review and use.  Libraries with
         recording studios may request additional manuals by contacting the NLS Reference

         Also enclosed are copies of two new brochures developed to assist organizations
         that participate in the NLS volunteer machine-repair program with recruitment.
