It has become apparent to me that one or two long standing members that have taken discs from the pool in the past are now unsure as to whether they have certain discs in the pool or not. The reason for this is that I renumbered some of the discs in the pool. 8BS had collected a few BBC PD discs and I had given these discs a catalogue number starting at 1 not realising that later I would be receiving the whole collection from Alan Blundell. Later arrived and, yes you guessed it Alan Blundell kindly sent a large box of discs to me. Rather than confuse the issue completely and continue giving these discs my own number, I decided that it would be far better to use the BBC PD catalogue numbers. So this I did, removed all the old BBC numbers from the 8BS catalogue and gave these entries their original BBC PD numbers. I could then insert the rest of the discs I had been sent into the catalogue. As I was doing this I realised that a large number of the discs in other sections of the 8BS catalogue were also duplicated in the BBC PD collection. A number of entries were then removed from other sections of the catalogue (mainly the TBI and JJF PD section). I knew that this was going to cause problems. Firstly, the changeover. I was going to get orders from people asking for BBC-5 for instance would this be the old 5 or the new 5? Fortunately there were very few problems here as most people use the order form correctly and not only give the disc catalogue number but also its title. However, another problem crops up now and again when the occasional member finds difficulty in knowing whether they have for instance the old BBC-25 or the new BBC-25. This info is for these members. Use the following info to renumber your discs so that in future you know which catalogue entries you have. The first number was the old 8BS BBC catalogue number, the second is the new BBC number.
