•Libraries participating in Cooperative
Collection Development projects are responsible for the organization
and maintenance of rotation schedules.
•Collections must be clearly
labeled so as to be easily distinguishable from the regular delivery
bags. The destination of the collection must also be clearly marked
on the bag. •Collections must be placed at the designated delivery
•Canvas bags should be packed in a neat fashion--larger items on the
bottom, smaller on the top. Books are to be packed side by side, perpendicular
to the direction of the bag handle.
•Bags should not weigh in excess
of 40 pounds each. When packed for shipment, a collection should not
exceed 3 canvas bags on a given day.
Member libraries must provide
their own canvas bags for these collections. The Operations Manager should
be contacted regarding product information on System approved canvas
bags. A cooperative canvas bag purchase may be arranged.
Because of the heavy
volume of delivery on Mondays and Tuesdays, rotating
collections will only be rotated on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
