deliverIT CT (formerly Connecticar): Routing Slips

Statewide Library Delivery Service

Update

Update: May 29 deliverIT CT has been suspended since March 16th when a majority of CT libraries closed to the public due to the COVID19 pandemic.During that time the Supervisor of Transportation has been working with me to:

  • Work with libraries to establish a new norm of contact-less delivery for the health and safety of all parties involved with delivery. We deeply appreciate the cooperation and accommodation of most libraries to achieve this goal.
  • Van Block sorting facility was re-configured to establish a more efficient workflow and also to accommodate social distancing in a small space.​
  • Routes were assessed and refined to maximize existing resources. 
We were also able to hire 2 new f/t drivers to fill long vacant positions. For the first time in 3.5 years we are fully staffed with 2 back-up drivers. The new drivers were thoroughly trained in the service, on the routes and worked with the Supervisor to establish the contact-less service.
 
On Friday June 5th, deliverIT CT will resume a limited service to libraries that have accommodated contact-less access:
  • On June 5th, drivers will be returning materials to libraries still in vans and the sorting facility but will not be picking up any materials.​
  • One Monday June 8th, drivers will be conducting a limited 3 day clean out of materials returned to libraries after March 16th. Each library will be able to place up to 6 bins in their sheds or in designated areas approved by deliverIT Supervisor. 
  • Drivers will pick up the 6 bins on Monday and spend the next 1-2 days returning materials to libraries from that pick up. They will not be picking up any bins during this phase.
  • Once agreed on there will also be a special pick up for academic ILL materials. There is a task force currently working on that.
  • Regular deliverIT CT service "3 bins in, 3 bins out up to 5 days a week'" will resume on the 11th or 12th.
Drivers will be subject to strict health and safety guidelines:
  • They will have their temperature taken each morning
  • They will be required to wear masks and gloves
  • They will be required to regularly wash their hands and sanitize
  • Their vans will be sanitized every day​
  • ​They are advised to report any conditions deemed unsafe
This is subject to change due to any additional guidance from state DAS or the Governor's Office.
We appreciate your patience, and if you have any questions please use the deliverIT CT contact form.

deliverIT CT - Preprinted Routing Slips

Here's a blank routing slip in Excel format. You can choose a library name and the library's route will appear.

(Spreadsheet updated: June 12, 2020)

Tips for using the Excel version of the routing slips:

  • You can choose your library name in the 'From' area on the slip and save it. When you need to print a slip, you can open the file, choose a library name in the 'To' area, select one of the button options (for example "ILL request" or "ILL Return," and print the slip or slips.
  • If you are printing multiple slips, you can put a few words from the title of the item at the top of each slips, so that you know which slip goes each corresponding item.
  • You can use the "Clear buttons" option to clear the choices from the list of bulleted items.
  • When you want to print 1 slip have a blank second slip...when you click to get the list of library names, the second line, right after “Click here and choose…” and before “Abington Social Library” is a white line. Choose the blank line, and that will clear info from the slip. You’ll also have to manually remove the date for a really blank slip. That might be useful if you have to print one slip – you can print a blank one to save and use to manually write a slip.
  • You can type messages into the "Date returned by patron" and the "Remarks" fields.

If you open the spreadsheet and get a “Security Warning” just below the menu bar, you can click “Options” and then “Enable this content” and then OK and then the label should work. If you keep getting the Security Wanting, you can set a folder as a “Trusted Location” and files in that folder will open with the active content already enabled (i.e. no warnings).

To set a folder as a "Trusted Location," save the file in a folder.  I created a “Ccar Slips” folder on my C: drive and put the Ccar slips file in that folder, now I want to ‘trust’ that folder / location. To set the folder as a ‘Trusted Location,’ try this:

  1. Open Excel
  2. Click the Microsoft Office button, which is in the top, left-hand corner of the page and which has the Windows logo on it.
  3. Click the “Excel Options” button, which is at the very bottom of the dialogue box and is right next to Exit Excel button. A new window will open with the Excel Options.
  4. Click “Trust Center” from the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
  5. Click “Trust Center Settings” button, which is toward the middle of the page.
  6. Click “Trusted Locations,” which is on the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
  7. Click the “Add new location” button, which near the bottom of the page.
  8. Click the Browse button
  9. Navigate to the folder where the file is saved. (In my case it’s C:\Steve\Ccar\Ccar Slips.)
  10. Click the OK button
  11. Click the OK button to close the Trust Center
  12. Click the OK button to close Excel Option.
