II Item Records for ebook purchases

We add item records to all purchased ebooks. When email confirmation arrives forward it to Michael and include reserve class number and faculty name, if necessary. Ask him to add an item record to this purchase and then forward the message on to Kellam. (Do same without the Kellam part if it’s a non-reserve purchase.)

III Create order record on Millennium

Go to Admin- Settings and choose the special order record template: EBLebook ebook purchase

Enter the price that appears on the email you received and if this is for a reserve class, please also change Order Code 2 to W Rush Reserve. (No need to enter the class info in a notes field—this will just be for running reports about ebook reserves).
