Systems Update - December 31, 2016

Hello Libraries,

Here is your systems update for the week of December 31st, 2016.

Reminder: Custom Receipts Survey

This is just a reminder to please participate in the receipts survey if you get a chance. The survey is to decide if we'd like a different set of default receipt templates for Sage.

Reminder: Z39.50 and bringing in new MARC records

After the cleanup of records with incorrect encodings (mangled symbols) we are still seeing records coming in with uncorrected entries. The main issue areas have been in the subject/summary and added author entry fields. Please remember to look at the entirety of a record after bringing it in to make sure the mangled symbols are corrected.

Courier Information

The courier information page is located at Here you can find information on labelling and dropsites. If you require more green bags or other information, please let us know through the ticketing system at and we can make sure that you are sent bags or routed to where you can find the information you need. Bag requests can also go through the courier listserv ( If you need to be added to the list, we can also do that for you.
