    DOCUMENTO NACIONAL DE IDENTIDAD
    It is mandatory in many Spanish-speaking countries to carry a national identity card, or Documento Nacional de Identidad (DNI), showing the bearer's personal details and a photo. In Spain it is also called a carné, and all Spanish citizens have to carry one from the age of fourteen. The card is renewed every five or ten years at police stations, and must be shown to police upon demand. A similar document, the “Cédula (Nacional) de Identidad” is carried in Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina and Chile. In 2006 Spain began introducing an electronic identity card, which has a microchip containing the holder's personal details in digitized form.

    Ex: The intending borrower merely specifies a search key for the item he wishes to borrow, and the system provides a bibliographic description.

    Ex: Documents which will not be evident to the browser of shelves include: documents out on loan, documents which might be obtained by inter-library loan, and any collections which are kept in closed access.
    Ex: When a library member asks for a fictional book he usually frames his request in this way: 'I am looking for a book by Victor Canning'.
    Ex: The level of specificity that is desirable in any index is a function of the collection being indexed, its use and its patrons.
    Ex: A book index is an alphabetically arranged list of words or terms leading the reader to the numbers of pages on which specific topics are considered, or on which specific names appear.
    Ex: The system permits the requester to specify up to five potential lending libraries, and the system transmits the requests to these libraries one at a time.
    Ex: To read a borrower label place the scanner on the left side of the label and move it from left to right across the bar codes, pressing lightly to keep it in direct contact with the label.
