        Network Bulletin  No.: 08-39
        
        Date:          September 26, 2008
        
        Subject:  CMLS                     
        Index term:   Transfers of Codes DDB9, WBB1, and NWL8        
        
        The Comprehensive Mailing List System (CMLS) publication codes for online
        activities should not be processed in the same manner as magazine subscriptions when
        patrons are transferred to other libraries.  These codes are DDB9 for Braille and
        Audio Reading Download (BARD) users and WBB1 for Web-Braille users. 
        Additionally, Newsline (NWL8), an online phone system run by National Federation
        of the Blind (NFB), is included in CMLS as a service to NFB. These three
        codes DDB9, WBB1, and NWL8 must be kept in the reading records of patrons
        when they are transferred to other network libraries.  
        
        The codes allow NLS to track patron use of these program formats. This ensures that
        patrons who use the electronic portions of the free library service are recognized as
        active users and their online services will not be interrupted.
