NLS Operations Alert

No. 06-04

DATE  : January 24, 2006

TO    : Network Libraries
FROM  :        John Bryant, Production Control Section

Subject :      Book Recall:  RC 59669, RC 59670, and RC 59999

The following recorded cassette titles were released under the Shared Masters program
to network libraries in error and must be recalled: 

__Portrait (RC 59669)__ by Iain Pears
__Two Dollar Bill: A Stone Barrington Mystery (RC 59670)__ by Stuart Woods
__Innocent (RC 59999)__ by Harlan Coben

The Shared Masters program is a pilot project undertaken by Talking Book Publishers
and commercial publishers to minimize the time it takes to get new books to our
patrons.  Talking Book Publishers erroneously informed NLS that the aforementioned
titles were approved for release by the publisher. 

Because the performance copyright permissions for the commercial audiobooks have
not been granted, Talking Book Publishers will rerecord these titles and distribute them
with different book numbers. The new book numbers will be announced in the February
copy allotment batch.

Please immediately return all copies of the aforementioned titles. Apply your library's
return address card to each container to ensure that all copies of the titles are retrieved.
Send the individual copies to:

Multistate Center West, Library of Congress
250 North 1950 West, Suite D
Salt Lake City, UT 84116-7904
Attn: Shared Masters returns
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
