Fall 2019 LORI Item Count


The semiannual LORI Delivery Item Count will take place the week of Sunday, October 20 to Saturday, October 26, 2019.

This is a one week count of outgoing items sent through the LORI Network Delivery system. If your library is a LORI member, OLIS requires your participation to ensure both the continuous monitoring and improvement of the delivery network. Instructions may be found on the OLIS website. OLIS also provides a worksheet to record items as they are placed in LORI bins.

OSL Member Libraries Report the Sum of the Following:

  1. Outgoing items checked out through Sierra to other OSL libraries. (OSL will capture and provide the data.)
  2. Outgoing items to non-OSL member libraries and items not checked out through Sierra.

Non-OSL Member Libraries Report the Sum of the Following:

  1. Outgoing items checked out to patrons at any library other than your own.

This delivery count is a requirement of all LORI library facilities currently receiving delivery service, which includes Main and Branch libraries, DOD (Delivery on Demand), Hub, and Satellite locations.
