Manifesting Polaris: Streamlining Courier with Polaris and Open Source

For all libraries, shipping items from branch is time and labor intensive, especially when you need to process each item individually. Larger libraries shipping thousands of items per day use central service facilities with technology designed to process entire bins at once, rather than individual items. But what happens if your library doesn’t have a central service facility? What happens if they can’t afford the technology? Using free and open source software, we wrote our own browser based tote manifesting system for use with Polaris ILS. Maybe it’ll work for your library!
