Incoming Manifests Now Available from the ILDS Site
ILDS participants are now able to print a copy of their incoming manifest directly from the ILDS website, listing the bags their location is receiving on any given day. ILDS sites are no longer receiving paper copies from their Lanter Delivery Systems driver. Detailed instructions document how to use this new feature of the ILDS label system to generate incoming manifests are available from the Documentation tab. Please make sure that the appropriate staff in your library are aware of this change.
Please note that there are some occasions when a delivery bag may not show up on your incoming manifest. The most common reason for this is that the barcode on the printed label could not be scanned. The causes include a barcode that is printed too lightly, a part of the barcode is missing, and other printer problems that result in defective barcodes. While we try to make the manifests as correct and complete as possible, the main goal of ILDS is to get materials to you as quickly and safely as possible. As long as the eye-readable address is legible, the bag will make it to its destination, but we do encourage you to provide an adequate printer and to monitor the quality of the labels being produced.
CARLI staff are addressing some technical issues related to this change. For the most current information regarding any known issues with the ILDS system, visit the CARLI Systems Status page. Please continue to send your questions, comments, and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
