Trans-Amigos Express - Labeling Requirements
Each participating library is assigned an individual location number and hub city code. Library staff should attach a completed TExpress or TAE label on each outbound piece indicating a location number code and hub city designation. This information is what the courier uses to deliver materials. Location number and hub codes can be found at https://www.amigos.org/node/137.
Amigos provides courier participants with a master label sheet, but each library is responsible for ordering blank label stock and producing labels in-house. Labels can be ordered from your preferred office supply store.
The TAE label template for the nylon mail bags is the 3” x 4” non-adhesive name badge insert cardstock (such as the Avery 5392). The TAE label template for envelopes and boxes is the 3 1/3" x 4" adhesive shipping labels (such as the Avery 5164).
Each label should be completed as follows:
- Date Sent
- From Location # / Hub – location number and hub of the sending library.
- To Location # – location number of the receiving library should be clearly marked in large numerals.
- Hub City – 3-character HUB city abbreviation of the receiving library
- Attention – voluntary for ILL items but required if material is being sent to a recipient other than the ILL office. (See Non-Interlibrary Loan Materials page for more details).
