1. Creating a new lot

2. Measuring

End-Processing Supervisor - before sending the order, remember to check each order for the following:

Box type:

  • Anything less than 25 mm thick needs a four-flap enclosure (default)
  • Anything greater than 25 mm thick needs a clamshell-style enclosure (default).
  • Anything over 1,000 mm total (h + w + d) needs a two-piece box.

Board type:

  • E-flute is the default board type. If the default is changed, it will remain until manually changed back.
  • Books thicker than 25 mm and larger than quarto size need 56 pt board.
  • Very heavy items also need 56 pt. board type, no matter what the size.

3. Completed box orders

  1. When boxes arrive, locate the correct lot on the shelf.
  2. Open up the box orders.  Starting with number 1, fold the boxes along the scored lines to create the CMI case. 
    1. When the box is constructed, place the item inside and make sure that it fits securely and closes easily. 
    2. Keep the routing and Aeon slip with the item and case, and save the envelope for use in the future. Discard envelopes that are torn or dirty.
  3. Continue until all boxes are assembled.  Save any packing paper in the mezzanine storage closet, and recycle the shipping boxes.
  4. If an invoice is included, send this to the Technical Services Librarian.
  5. Place items on the appropriate “Incoming” shelves in End-Processing.
