This title is in high demand and numerous patrons have requested their own personal copies. To accommodate those individuals who wish to keep a digital copy, many libraries have downloaded and duplicated DB 68777 to patron-provided digital cartridges. This practice has also helped libraries retain copies for circulation.

The NLS Reference Section is preparing a list of organizations that provide digital audio and e-text versions of the Bible and is updating the extensive reference circular Bibles and Other Sacred Writings in Special Media (1999).
