Book notifications will be turned off soon

Greetings. I received the following note from the NLS Digital Download Pilot program today regarding the end of their weekly announcements by email. As has been reported and posted on other blogs recently, the NLS Digital Download program will be ceasing on April 28, to be replaced by the new BARD site, covering Braille and recorded downloads, on April 30. Among the advantages of this are unlimited downloads, a list of frequently downloaded books, and more. Unfortunately, this means that this Friday will be the last day that emailed notices of new books being added to the collection. Read more below. Enjoy.



This Friday's new book and magazine announcements will be the last messages sent on the DTB-Test mailing list.

The download pilot test will end next Tuesday. You should have received a message last week detailing the change to our permanent service, the NLS BARD.

There will be no announcements of materials added to BARD. Users are asked to refer to the Recently Added Books and Magazines pages on the site.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the pilot test. We couldn't have done it without you.

- Neil
