Items that go directly to the off-site Library Annex (LINX) after check-in have their own pickup shelf (Materials for Storage), which is separate from the rest of the departmental pickup shelves. These items will usually have a location of STORA, STORC, or STORM (there are other variations). The LINX (Materials for Storage) pickup shelf is located on the east side of Content Services near the Web Services offices and Content Services Copier Room.
Make sure the item record for the item going to LINX (STORA, STORC, STORM, etc.) has a Status=t (IN TRANSIT) and a Sticky Status=5 (REQUEST THIS ITEM).
If an item is located in the Library Annex, also known as LINX, you DO NOT have to physically go get it, as the Library Annex is in a different building several blocks away from campus. However, you can send a S-H-I-P request for the item to be sent to you for review.
It is time to check Caiasoft. In order to do this, you or someone in your department needs a Caiasoft account in order to login and check to see if the item was accessioned in Caiasoft (barcode scanned into the Caiasoft system) or not.
If you do not have a Caiasoft account: Let Ashley or Lisa in Serials know that you need help verifying if an item was accessioned or not in Caiasoft. If you want your own account so you can check yourself, you can send your Caiasoft account request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a Caiasoft account:
Click on “Circulation”.
Click on “S-H-I-P: Special Handling, Internal & Preservation”.
Click on “Add Items”.Note: Once you click on this, it automatically creates a “job” in real time.If you decide that you need to delete your “job," click on "Delete Job".
After receiving the item from LINX and your review is done, then you can proceed to update the item record and send the item back to LINX.
Before sending the item back to LINX, make sure to change the item record status to "t" (In Transit) and the sticky status to "5" (Request This Item).
Then proceed to hand the item to User Services Staff.User Services Staff will make sure the status is “t” and sticky status “5”, print a receipt, flag the item with the receipt, then place the item in the LINX return bin (green bin). This procedure is only for items already accessioned. Do not use this procedure for items awaiting to be accessioned.
Item record status:
Status: "t" (In Transit)
Sticky Status: "o" (Noncirculating)
