Locally Produced Collections: Books and Magazines

A Note About Local Collections on BARD

NLS has plans to add network produced magazines and books to BARD. Those that have met the QA requirements have already been added and that list will continue to grow. The new component will be network materials that have not gone through the QA process but that meet the minimal requirements to play on an NLS digital player. These will be indicated on BARD as locally produced materials. The goal of NLS is to have this project happen sometime soon but an exact timeframe has not been announced.
