NLS Operations Alert

No. 09-61

DATE  : December 15, 2009

TO    : Network Libraries
FROM  : Deborah Toomey

Subject :      Player and BARD information in CMLS

Please be reminded that when a digital machine is distributed to a patron it must be 
correctly noted in both the patron's CMLS file and the library's machine file.

In addition, all patrons who are using the Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD)
service should have "DDB9" added as a magazine code to their CMLS file. If patrons who
have "DDB9" on their magazine file discontinue regular library service, do NOT cancel their
registration until a staff member has contacted them and confirmed that they no longer wish
to receive service.  Some patrons are requesting only BARD service and should remain on
record as active patrons.
