Requesting Additional Delivery Bags
If a library is short on delivery bags, a request can be sent to the Delivery Listserv (MOB-Delivery-L) and member libraries can ship their excess bags to the requesting library.
Damaged bags should be returned to the MOBIUS office for counting and disposal. Tracking the numbers of damaged bags helps MOBIUS determine how long they last in use. The address for the MOBIUS office is in the website Label Maker.
Returning MOBIUS Bags from Another Courier System
Two MOBIUS libraries have volunteered to be hubs for bags being sent back from our courier partners. This is done to keep the bags among our libraries and lead to faster circulation back to our member libraries.
If you are from CliC and/or the Colorado Alliance, send bags to:
University of Missouri-Kansas City Nichols (UMK)
Using our label maker this will be code NW-210
If you are from Trans-Amigos (TAE) send bags to:
Missouri State University - Springfield Meyer (SWMYR)
Using our label maker this will be code SW-105
If you are from neither of these organizations or don't have access to a courier network please contact us at:
111 E. Broadway Ste 220
Columbia, MO 65203
Annual Bag Inventory
Each year MOBIUS does an inventory of all bags in the system to help us determine if additional bags need to be purchased. For additional information see the Annual Delivery Bag Inventory Procedure.
|Year||Bag Order||Total Bags Purchased||Bag Count Total|
|FY2003-2004||1000||5200||2063, 3380 (Nov)|
Information has been reconstructed from historical data, where no data was available the cell is blank.
Bag orders tended to arrive after the count was completed, so the Grand Total may not include that year's order.
In 2004 there were two bag counts, the second one in November is also shown.
FY2001-2002 had two separate bag orders of 1,100 each.
FY2014-2015 had two separate bag orders of 1,000 each.
