Deadline Approaching - Selection Profile Update Cycle: Final Date for New Selections is September 30, 2021

Thursday, September 30, 2021, is the deadline for libraries intending to add tangible formats to their item selection profiles for Federal fiscal year 2022 (October 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022). Changes to item selection profiles are made in the Depository Selection Information Management System (DSIMS).

Beginning on October 1, 2021, any tangible format item numbers previously added to a library’s Cart become effective.

You can add EL format item numbers at any time of the year, and selections go into effect immediately. Item number deselections also take effect immediately.

Instructions on using DSIMS and a Tools to Manage Your Selection Profile – Quick Start guide are available.
