Chapter 35). Copies of the proposed collection instrument may be obtained by contacting the Bureau's clearance officer at the phone number listed below. Public comments on the proposal should be made within 30 days directly to: Desk Officer for the Interior Department, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC 20503; and the Bureau of Clearance Officer, U.S. Geological Survey, 208 National Center, Reston, Virginia 20192, Telephone (703) 648-7313. As required by OMB regulations at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), the U.S. Geological Survey solicits specific public comments regarding the proposed information collection as to: 1. Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. The accuracy of the bureau's estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. The utility, quality, and clarity of the information to be collected; and, 4. How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other forms of information technology. Title: On-Demand System for Printing USGS Maps. OMB approval number: New Collection. Abstract: Customers for USGS maps will be invited to indicate their satisfaction with an experimental, on-demand version of a USGS topographic map as compared to the standard printed edition of the same map. Potential respondents will be mailed an evaluation package consisting of sample maps and a short questionnaire. Those electing to respond will then use the postage-paid questionnaire to answer specific questions about the experimental map and to submit additional comments they may wish to offer. Information from respondents will be used to evaluate a point- of-sale map printing system the USGS intends to develop under a cooperative research and development agreement with private industry. The proposed collection is limited in scope to the on-demand printing system and its output products, and to the suitability of these experimental products to meet respondent applications for USGS maps. Bureau form number: None. Frequency: An estimated 2-3 surveys per year as indicated by technical milestones reached during the course of the on-demand development project and by customer reaction to initial map products generated from the on-demand system. Description of respondents: General public USGS map purchasers; dealers of USGS maps. Estimated completion time: 0.1 hours per response. Annual responses: 1,000. Annual burden hours: 100 hours. Bureau clearance officer: John Cordyack, 703-648-7313.
