Not Ready to Restart Delivery Services?
If you are not yet ready to restart delivery services at your library, then please contact the Delivery Help Desk Ticketing System at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Delivery on the Go Suspended *updated*
IHLS Delivery is suspending Delivery On the Go through the end of September. We will reevaluate reinstating DOG then.
While IHLS maintains a record of who is open for receiving interlibrary delivery, libraries do not report to us when they are open or closed to patrons, for curbside delivery, or for other services.
IHLS has a member-reported list of known Closings of IHLS-member libraries from March 15 to April 1, 2020, but that list was not continued past April 1, 2020. Additionally, a member librarian organized a spreadsheet of libraries' reopening plans, including dates for reopening doors and curbside delivery. To view sample reopening plans, some of which are quite detailed, navigate to the COVID-19 Resources for Librarians page >> Public Library Reopening/Operation Plans section.
Questions or Concerns?
If your questions cannot be answered after reading the FAQs or if you have concerns you want to discuss, please reach out to your IHLS Delivery hub manager.
You can find documents shared during the meeting in the L2 event.
Directors' Chats are scheduled every Thursday through the end of July from 1 to 2 p.m. Registration in L2 is requested
