NLS Operations Alert


No. 19-53


DATE         :   August 6, 2019                       

TO             :   Network Libraries

FROM        :   Meredith Beckhardt, Head, Reference Section

SUBJECT   :   Magazine codes for locally produced magazines



NLS is introducing a procedure for obtaining a unique magazine code for any new local magazine being recorded by a network studio. Network libraries should contact Meredith Beckhardt, Reference Section Head, to obtain a code for the magazine. This code would be necessary should the publication ever become a QA magazine and would enable network libraries to circulate the magazine through Duplication on Demand. This will also enable the Reference Section to update the page on the Network Library Services website that lists all of the titles and annotations for all locally produced magazines.
