Tip of the Week - #098 (Heavy Packages)

Keywords: appropriate use, bags, canvas bags, packing, PCIRC, policies, shipping, Priority Dispatch

Its okay to use Priority Dispatch to deliver non-PCIRC material to your partner institutions (for instance, discards from library delivered to another library). But when packing these materials, make sure the box or bag that you use does not exceed the maximum weight of 50 lbs. If Priority Dispatch has to move, boxes or bags that weigh more than 50 pounds, they will charge OhioLINK an extra fee (plus the folks on the other end may have lift it!). So, distribute the weight among several boxes or bags to the benefit of all.
