Van Delivery News - November 2016

Mon, 31 Oct 2016 12:48:00 +0000

The New Hampshire State Library will be closed on the following days in the month of November:

Friday, November 11, 2016, in honor of Veterans' Day
Thursday, November 24, 2016, Thanksgiving Day
Friday, November 25, 2016, Day after Thanksgiving

There will be NO VAN DELIVERY on those dates.

For a complete list of all of the holidays the State Library is closed, please visit http://www.nh.gov/nhsl/services/librarians/van_delivery/instructions.html (the van delivery instructions) and scroll down to "NO Van Service".

If for any other reason (e.g. bad weather) van service on a particular route(s) does not operate, libraries will be notified via an e-mail message and this blog. If your library does not receive van service on a particular day, please check your e-mail and this blog before calling the State Library.

Please remember to properly label each item which you are sending via the Van Delivery Service. This will help ensure these items make it to the correct destination in a timely manner.

If you need a refresher on how items should be marked for the van, please refer to the Van Delivery Service - Instructions, http://www.nh.gov/nhsl/services/librarians/van_delivery/instructions.html, and scroll down to number 3 of the guidelines, "Addressing material to be sent on the van".

To print a current van directory list arranged in alphabetical order by library, please use the PDF version which is available at http://www.nh.gov/nhsl/services/librarians/van_delivery/documents/vandirectory.pdf
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print this pdf file. If you do not have it installed on your machine, you may down load it for free from http://www.adobe.co.uk/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

Due to the ever increasing load of materials transported by the New Hampshire State Library van delivery system, our vans can reach maximum capacity before the end of a van route, especially following long weekends and holidays. Our drivers can decline to accept materials if they feel they cannot fit them safely on their van. We are also asking libraries to please be aware of volume during times when there is likely to be a problem. You should prioritize your materials to be picked up, in case some items must be left until the next van pick up. That will allow us to immediately transport the most important items as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions you may contact Donna Gilbreth at 271-2060 or Diana DeCota at 271-2206.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Van Delivery Overflow Bins

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:40:00 +0000

Often times, a van driver will need to drop off an "overflow" bin at a library while delivering materials on the van delivery route. If you receive an "overflow" bin on your delivery day, please make sure that you return it the next time the van stops at your library.   These bins belong to the State Library and often are in short supply due to the volume of materials being transported. Your cooperation in the speedy return of these bins would be appreciated by all of the van drivers.

NHU-PAC ILL class October 4

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 16:21:00 +0000

NHU-PAC interlibrary loan training will be offered online on the morning of Tuesday, October 4.  See the "How to Register for Classes" section on the NHAIS Services training page for details and to sign up for classes.

Registrants will be sent login information on the day before the class.  We're using GoToMeeting for this.  You can check out the GoToMeeting FAQ page (especially the Attending a Meeting, Webinar or Class section) ahead of time to get an idea of how it works and whether your equipment meets the minimum standards.  You don't need a microphone--a text chat option will be used for questions or comments from participants.  You should be able to hear the instructor's audio through speakers/headphones/earphones attached to your computer but there's a dial-in option (regular long distance phone charges apply) if needed for audio.

If you have questions about NHU-PAC training or using the online registration system, contact the NHAIS Help Desk via e-mail or phone 271-2141.



Interlibrary loan with New Hampshire colleges

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 17:09:00 +0000

With schools back in session, NHU-PAC ILL users selecting lender strings will now see check boxes next to the names of numerous schools--check boxes that had disappeared during summer vacation, when school libraries weren't staffed to check for ILL requests.  Users may still see a lack of check boxes next to the names of several colleges.  While these colleges have holdings displayed in the NHU-PAC, they aren't using the NHU-PAC to receive ILL requests.  You can still request materials from these colleges through other channels--check out the NH Colleges and ILL page on the NHAIS Services website for specifics.

Van McLeod

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 17:18:00 +0000

The Department of Cultural Resources is deeply saddened to announce that our long-time commissioner, Van McLeod, passed away this morning at 5 a.m. at Concord Hospital.Van was first confirmed to the position of commissioner in 1992. He brought to the job an extended background in theatre, film, rock concert production, event planning and promotion. Throughout his time in state government, he was a tireless champion for culture in all of its forms: the arts, film and television, historical preservation and libraries. He was as well known for his humor and compassion as he was for his devotion to supporting culture statewide. Van won many awards and accolades throughout his career, but perhaps the award he cherished most was the recognition that he was a great guy, universally liked and respected.Arrangements will be announced in the near future.[...]
