Richard,

I have never seen strictly prescribed formats for reporting BFM, etc., to LC.  I use something like this

Hello NACO,

Just one new authority record:

no2015-100234
                                    78-535227     75-585118
to report BFM.  (I find it easier to proofread the numbers in the message when I insert the dashes.)

When reporting duplicate authority records, I do it this way:

Hello NACO,

Please delete no2004-699992 ;  it duplicates  no2004-700003
Please delete no97-32009 ;  it duplicates  no93-10724.

I think the main thing is for the information to be very clear.  If the folks at LC prefer something different, I haven’t ‘gotten the message’.

Subject: Templates for NACO BFM reporting

Are there templates for reports to be submitted per https://www.loc.gov/aba/pcc/naco/bfmguide.html ?

I gather that these are made according to a rather strict form.
