Transit Slip Instructions

Please DO NOT reuse transit labels by crossing through destinations, circling or highlighting information. Always use a NEW transit label.  Labels are set up to help our sorters view information at a glance and assists in getting items into your patrons hands as quickly as possible.

The new Official IHLS Transit Label can be accessed by clicking on http://www.illinoisheartland.org/sites/default/files/Transit_slip_032013.pdf

When completing the slip please include the following information:

  • Library Name (mandatory):   Name of the receiving library (Decatur Public Library, Marshall High School, etc)   
  • Library Code:  If the receiving library is a SHARE member, their 4 letter code will go on this line.  The codes can be found by clicking on http://share.illinoisheartland.org/sites/default/files/POLARIS%20CODES-all%20branches.pdf  Hint:  the first 3 letters of all codes are related to the library name, the last letter will be:

             E for schools

(for example:  Decatur Public Library DPLP.  If the receiving library is not listed on the codes list, it is not a SHARE member, please leave this line blank and complete Library Name and hub code lines)
