SHIPPING TOOL UPDATE JUNE 10, 2016

Canadian Urban Library Council (CULC) to take over administration of Library Materials Shipping Tool

For many years the Canadian Library Association (CLA) has administered the Library Shipping Tool for libraries across Canada. This tool provided libraries across Canada access to affordable shipping rates. As a result of CLA’s pending dissolution, it will no longer be administering this tool however we are delighted to share with you that the new administrator of this tool will be the Canadian Urban Libraries Council (CULC). CLA has been working with CULC to ensure that existing customer needs are met. More information will be provided through CULC on this transition.

In the interim, CULC invites you to update your contact information by clicking the survey link

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/libraryshippingtool

Please take a few moments to complete this in order to assist with the transition and ensure that CULC has accurate information for your institution.

On January 27, 2016 the CLA membership voted to dissolve the organization and support the creation of a new unified national library advocacy organization, the Canadian Federation of Library Associations/Fédération canadienne des associations de bibliothèques (CFLA/FCAB). Since then CLA has been preparing for dissolution and to close its doors towards the end of June 2016.

We thank you for your patience as we move through this transition. Do not hesitate to reach out to us should you have any questions.


IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING THE LIBRARY MATERIALS SHIPPING TOOL UPDATE APRIL 22, 2016

Effective July 1st, 2016, CLA members using the Library Materials Shipping Tool (EOE Secure) will only be able to pay for their shipments using either credit cards or stamps.

In February it was communicated that the option of Supplier Account would replace meter for parcels, however unfortunately that option cannot be offered in the shipping tool.

There is no change for libraries currently using credit cards or stamps to pay for parcel shipments.

To assist CLA members, we have prepared simple instructions on how to select credit cards or stamps when paying for parcel shipments using the shipping tool.

AVIS IMPORTANT CONCERNANT L’’OUTIL D’EXPÉDION DES DOCUMENTS DE BIBLIOTHÊQUE  (mise à jour le 22 AVRIL, 2016):

À compter du 1er juillet 2016, les membres de l’Association canadienne des bibliothèques (ACB) qui utilisent l’Outil d’expédition des documents de bibliothèque (solution protégée SCE) ne pourront payer leurs expéditions qu’au moyen d’une carte de crédit ou de timbres.

Tel qu’il a été communiqué précédemment, le paiement par machine à affranchir pour les envois de colis ne sera plus accepté à compter du 1er juillet 2016. Vous pouvez continuer à utiliser votre machine à affranchir pour payer pour l’envoi de lettres.

En février, on vous a informé que l’option du compte de fournisseur remplacerait celle de la machine à affranchir pour les colis; malheureusement, il est impossible d’offrir cette option dans l’outil d’expédition.

Il n’y a aucun changement pour les bibliothèques qui paient actuellement leurs envois de colis au moyen d’une carte de crédit ou de timbres.

Afin de venir en aide aux membres de l’ACB, nous avons préparé des instructions simples qui expliquent comment payer les envois de colis au moyen d’une carte de crédit ou de timbres dans l’outil d’expédition.
