established library can use the ADRL option to receive
new manuals for new aircraft or to bring its library
up-to-date. To determine the latest publication changes
and revisions, refer to NAVSUP PUB 2002. The
ADRL option establishes a computer profile (list) of
technical publications (and their quantities) for a
particular activity or platform. Once you transmit the
list to NATEC, automatic distribution begins. You
should review NATECs ADRL and Validation Report
to ensure all NAVAIR manuals that you hold are listed
and resubmit your activitys ADRL to NATEC to
From time to time, an activity may need to obtain
additional publications to replace technical manuals as
separate items. To meet these requests, you should use
a onetime requisitioning system. To do this, use the
DOD Single Line Item Requisitioning System
Document (Manual), DD Form 1348, or message
preparation procedures for the Defense Automatic
Addressing System (DAAS). If you desire follow-up
changes or revisions for a publication that is obtained
by a onetime request, you should submit an update to
your activitys ADRL.
When using the TPL Program, enter the basic
manual into the TPL Program that needs to be ordered.
Next, create the MILSTRIP data file by using the
MILSTRIP option. This file can be sent directly to
Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP) via SALTS
or used to prepare a MILSTRIP message by using the
Message Text Formatter (MTF) Program. Messages
must be sent to DAAS Dayton, Ohio. For detailed
information about SALTS use, refer to the SALTS
When ordering a basic manual, you will
automatically receive all of the changes that are in stock
at NAVICP. Therefore, it is not necessary to order
DD Form 1348 is the standard MILSTRIP
requisition form that is used throughout the Navy
supply system. NAVAIR 00-25-100 contains detailed
instructions on how to use the DD Form 1348 to initiate
a onetime request for a NAVAIRSYSCOM technical
publication, technical directive, or departmental

MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Describe proce-
dures for managing the central technical pub-
lication library (CTPL).
The CTPL librarian manages the library. Records
are kept to identify the type, quantity, and location of all
activity publications under the librarians cognizance.
A well-managed CTPL reflects the degree of expertise
library personnel bring to this task and enhances
technical manual management within the dispersed
Prompt action must be taken to incorporate official
technical documentation and update material that is
received. Technical publication changes and revisions
must be screened, recorded, and routed. The material
must reach each work center that holds copies of the
affected manuals and directives so that changes and
revisions can be incorporated as quickly as possible. A
backlog or accumulation of unprocessed technical data
creates potential flight safety hazards. Compliance with
the above actions builds maintenance personnels
confidence in their technical manual system.
TECHNICAL PUBLICATIONS FILING AND
NAVAIR technical manuals and directives are
drilled with five distinctive holesthree large and two
small. The three large holes fit the posts of the special
NAVAIR publication binders, which are available in 2-
and 3-inch sizes. The two small holes are provided to
permit use of standard three-ring, loose-leaf binders.
Binder storage is a uniform means of protecting and
controlling the storage of loose documents.
