Advantage Library Cart Naming Convention


To all Advantage Libraries:


When placing Advantage orders please use the following naming convention "ADV - Library Name - (whatever other info you want to include)". For example this is the correct format "ADV-MATAWAN-030113".


This will make the lives of those managing the budgets and orders MUCH easier. Please let Tina (tina.doody@plfdpl.info) know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!

Don't worry, Tina! We can always revert the page to previous versions.
For your information, when you paste new contents on a page, please make sure that the existing contents are not removed. Place your cursor at the end of the page you are editing and paste the contents that you want to add.
I will add a note on the front page on this matter.
