ILDS libraries should be using the online label system to create labels when sending items to other ILDS locations. The online paper label should only be used when sending items to non-ILDS locations. When items are sent to non-ILDS locations, continue to create a label in the online system in addition to the paper label and then approve the manifest so that the shipment will be included as part of your library statistics.
