SUBJECT   :    NLS-produced magazines survey



NLS is in the process of evaluating the audio and braille magazines that it offers to patrons by subscription. Please note your opinion by participating in this survey on the NLS Magazine Program. Take the survey only if you have experience with the magazine program or work with magazine subscribers.


Your responses will help us adjust the lists to more accurately reflect the preferences of readers of contemporary magazines. Though the magazine trade, like book publishing, is in a state of flux, we will use the results of this survey to try to make modifications that will better serve NLS magazine-reading patrons.


The survey should take only a few minutes to complete. You may indicate which magazines you think NLS should retain or discontinue by selecting Yes or No. If you have no opinion or feel unable to decide, select No Opinion.


At the end of each section, you may list up to five magazines that you would like NLS to consider adding to the program. Duplication is acceptable.


To respond to the survey, select the following link:


Enter your library’s CMLS code and then follow the instructions given.


Please complete the survey by June 27, 2014.


Thank you for your cooperation and participation.
