To tape or Not To Tape

From Sharon at the State Library:

This is a reminder that C-Car packages should not be taped or stapled. The best practice is to secure the C-Car slip with two rubber bands cross-wise on the item. Even when you secure fragile items in a bubble envelope, securing with rubber bands should be enough. I have had reports of excessive taping, taping to the rubber bands, and stapling. Please help out your fellow ILL and circulation staff and resist the urge to use tape.

By the way, by following these procedure you will be helping the environment and your library budget since tape often makes it impossible to reuse the envelope. For a complete list of the procedures please refer to:
