SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Beginning on November 1, 2002, the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Nevada State Office will make available its Master Title Plats, Use Plats, and Historical Indices (Title Records) in an electronic format. At the same time, the BLM will phase out the use of microfiche for these records. This change reflects the BLM's Start Printed Page 70455changeover from a manual to a computer aided drafting process in the maintenance of the Title Records. Until November 1, 2002, Title Records will continue to be available on microfiche, at which time the microfiche will be phased out.

Users of the BLM Nevada's Title Record will continue to have access to these records from any of its Information Access Center locations. BLM offices are located in Reno, Winnemucca, Battle Mountain, Elko, Ely, Tonopah, Caliente, Carson City and Las Vegas.

Users may continue to make printouts of these records for a nominal cost. Cost for each record printed will be in accordance with the BLM's cost recovery charging rates as stated in Manual 1270-2, Cost Recovery, dated June 23, 1994.
