If you do not have an entity number (also called a Billed Entity Number or BEN), you will need to obtain one. In general, each school and school NIF in a school district and each library outlet/branch and library NIF in a library system must have its own entity number if it will receive discounted services. You can submit a question or contact the Client Service Bureau (CSB) at (888) 203-8100 to obtain entity numbers and to get more information on when they are required. (usac.or/sl 2012)
