Two new large-print catalogs listing books recorded by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) will soon be available to readers. Cassette Books 1997 describes cassette books for adults produced by NLS during the past year. For Younger Readers 1996-1997 lists recorded and braille children's books added to the NLS collection during the past two years. Both catalogs list books by subject categories and include forms for ordering selections from cooperating libraries. Later this year, Cassette Books will also be produced on flexible disc, and For Younger Readers will be produced on cassette.
The catalogs are being sent directly to patrons who ordered them on their annual publication order forms. They can also be ordered from your cooperating library. Cassette versions of these catalogs will be available on loan at a later date.
NLS reminds patrons that many new magazine titles have been recently added to the program. The complete list appears in the Magazines section of this issue and includes information about the number of issues per year and format of each title.
A new program offers young adult readers a sampling of magazines not otherwise available through the NLS program. Subscribers to Magazine of the Month for Young Adults receive a different flexible-disc magazine each month. This program is a result of recommendations from a committee that studied ways to improve the NLS magazine program. For a free subscription to Magazine of the Month for Young Adults, contact your local cooperating library.
Although the selections are subject to change, readers may receive some of the following magazines this year.
