Blue Sky Express Shipping Instructions Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Blue Sky Express Shipping Guide Interlibrary Delivery Linking Kansas and Colorado Courier Service
  • 2. Welcome to Blue Sky Express
    • ALL Kansas Library Express members can ship to many Colorado libraries at no additional cost using this service.
    • The service will deliver requests made through OCLC libraries in both states.
    • It is also serves as a general delivery service for shipping between participating courier libraries in Kansas and Colorado.
  • 3. How to Prepare Shipments
    • Colorado shipments require a library’s Courier Code. The code is the letter “C” followed by 3-digits.
    • Courier Codes are required for all items sent to Colorado locations. Items cannot be delivered with only a physical address.
  • 4. Use Colorado Courier Code
    • Check the list of Colorado courier libraries on the Blue Sky Express webpage:
    • Find the Courier Code of the requesting library.
  • 5. Identify Courier Code
    • The Courier Code will also appear as the top line of the shipping address in OCLC.
    • For example:
    • C106 (Courier Code)
    • Aurora Public Library
    • 14949 East Alameda Parkway
    • Aurora, CO 80012
  • 6. Find Shipping Label
    • Search the shipping labels for Colorado libraries using the Courier Code. These labels are linked at
    • on a separate link for Blue Sky Colorado libraries.
    • Confirm that the library name on the label retrieved is the requesting library.
  • 7. Print Shipping Label
    • Print the selected label. Choose “current page” from your printer dialog box so only one label sheet is printed.
    • A sheet of 6 labels will print at one time. Extra labels may be filed for future use.
    • Trim one label to be inserted into the address window of a courier shipping bag.
  • 8. Package Materials
    • Use Kansas Library Express nylon bags to ship materials via Blue Sky Express.
    • Colorado uses rubber bands to keep books closed during shipment (optional but recommended).
    • Cushion media materials with bubble wrap or cardboard sleeves. 
    • Use large bags only when required to limit shifting of materials during shipment.
  • 9. Pick-up and Delivery
    • Blue Sky Express shipments will be picked up and delivered by your Kansas Library Express courier.
    • Colorado shipments will be packaged in bundles according to their shipping procedures. See an example at:
