Settle Up Directions: Long In Transit
An item that as been in transit for more than 45 days is considered lost. The library that placed the item in transit (last scanned) is responsible for payment of replacement cost to the owning library. The owning library is responsible for billing the library that set their item into transit.
List of items
Getting a long in transit list requires some tricky listing and is different every month. So long as you run this list after the middle of each month, you can use the in transit message to find items that were put into transit NOT in this month or last month.
Example in transit message:
m Thu Apr 14 2012 08:40AM: IN TRANSIT from roccirc to cmlan
Create a list of items with the following conditions:
Months are as follows: Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
Check local shelves
Check your shelves to make sure that the item has not found its way home. If found, check in and you're done.
If the item is not found, create an invoice for it from the Long in Transit Invoice template . Be aware that many libraries require a W9 [link: http://apps2.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9.pdf] from your library or town in order to cut you a check. If you want to send invoices by email, scan a signed copy of your W9 to send along with the invoice.
Since it has already been 45 days when an invoice is sent, payment is due upon receipt of a long in transit invoice. However, I would recommend checking your shelves just in case, and see if the book has been mishelved. Ask owning library if they would take the book back instead of payment.
