Tip of the Week - #051 (Shipping to Non-OhioLINK Libraries)

Keywords: shipping, packing, Priority Dispatch

OhioLINK supplies all the shipping materials you need such as canvas bags, bubble envelopes, and boxes for media material. This material is intended to be used ONLY when shipping to another OhioLINK institution. There are other institutions in the state that are using Priority Dispatch. If you need to ship something to one of these sites, you can still use Priority Dispatch to do it, but DO NOT use OhioLINK shipping materials. It is unlikely the materials will come back to us and this becomes an extra cost we would not like to incur.

Also, there should be no OhioLINK shipping materials used to deliver material out-of-state. These locations should use traditional Interlibrary Loan procedures.
