Index term:  Travel plan for FY2009;
network requests for NLS staff visits 


NLS is now planning for travel for the next fiscal year, October 1, 2008 September 30, 2009.  We rely
upon your input in our planning process.  If you would like an NLS staff member to visit your library for a
specific purpose, please submit your request on the enclosed form, noting the month and/or specific dates. 
If at all possible, please avoid requesting visits for October as it is a difficult month for NLS staff to travel
because  of the fiscal-year budget transition.

Regular Network Services consultant visits to all regional libraries are made every two years as funds
permit.  Consultant visits can be scheduled in conjunction with local consumer, volunteer, or professional
events; however, we need to know these dates well in advance.  Generally funds do not permit us to make
consultant visits to subregional libraries.

NLS representatives are also available for workshops and special events.  These include consumer advisory
committee meetings, volunteer recognitions, machine-repair work-shops, outreach activities, subregional
library meetings, and open houses or dedications.  We will also consider other events.  Please provide as
much information as possible about the type of visit desired.  Requests received after August 17, 2008, will
be considered only as schedules and funds permit. 

Please indicate your preferences on the enclosed form and e-mail it to [log in to unmask] or fax it to (202) 707-
0712, attn: Steve Prine.
