Acquisitions Procedures: Receiving Room

Receiving Room Procedures

The receiving room is available for deliveries between 9:00am-5:00pm M-F.  During these hours Acquisitions Staff members are responsible for answering the back door.  Faculty and Staff members are reminded of these hours; so that they can schedule their deliveries accordingly.  If the backdoor is opened after it is locked at 5:00pm the key is located inside the metal drawers next to Chris' cube.  And the receiving room door key is in the triangle room hanging on the left hand side, and the triangle room is located over in the corner next to Alexandra's office.  Whenever the door bell rings it should be answered immediately. The Receiving Room is used for deliveries only.

Morning Papers

Whoever unlocks the Receiving Room door in the morning also brings in the morning papers, which get stamped (but not checked in, although you need to make sure we get everything we're supposed to receive). Papers must be delivered to Reserves by 9:15 a.m..
