This site has been set up to eliminate rekeying errors and to keep an electronic archive of all orders
you send in.
IE 5 or better.
Cooky acceptance is not required but is recomended.
Changes to previous slip:
The 3 'Keep fields' check boxes at the top of (respectively) Global options, special instructions, and title.
The title box: The Title text area now contains tags for standard Able/z39/Alink fields, if you choose to use them.
See entering Titles below.
The top row of navigation buttons.
These are to keep the specific fields in their sections as defined below at the
same setting(s) for the next piece that you have entered for the current piece,
after you submit the current piece. This does not apply to the editing of pieces
you have already submitted.
Keep Fields at Global Settings:
All current settings you entered are retained. If this is not set the next new piece
will use the settings from your customer profile and will retain only the Cover Color
Carries instructions over to the next item.
If you do not make mistakes or wish to review items as you go (see Navigation) below.
The typical sequence to submit is below

Click the 'Submit' button at the top of the form.
When all items have been added to the shipment click the 'Close Lot' button at the top of the form Caution: After lot is closed you can not add additional items.
This will send the lot to the Acme Imaging Dept. and create a packing list. for you to print out.
We suggest you print 2 copies, the titles listed will be the condensed titles used by Acme's Imaging cataloging software.
Use your browser's print button or File menu -> print cmd.
This will print a single sheet with your filled in information to a single sheet on
most printers using IE and Navigators default Font size settings. However: If form prints to 2 sheets you have a choice of 3 fixes.
Reduce Browser's Font size
IE: Use toolbar size button or Menu -> View -> Text size.
Navigator: Use Menu -> Edit -> Preferences -> Font

Prepares and sends this lot to Acme's Imaging Dept. the last page you will see is to be used as the Packing list.
The lot will no longer be available for editing.
Only 99 pieces are allowed in an Imaging Weblot, however you may send an unlimited number of pieces as before by creating a new lot for the next
pieces, perhaps using the same name but with an _1 or _2 or _a or _b appended.
If you create lots with no pieces (presumably only true if you accidentally exit the web site) the lot not be available
on your next visit. Empty lots are assumed to be the result of a connection failure and are deleted so the lot name can be used again.
Simply close the web browser, you may resume where you left off by logging into lot again until you hit to send us your lot.
The title text field includes tags needed by the ABLE bindery software, using them is the best way to
ensure against errors.
Best not to type in ALL UPPERCASE; follow the typical English class rules for writing titles.
Stamped titles are always printed in uppercase. It is best not to sacrifice legibility to unneeded ALL CAPS typing.
Type the appropriate data in between the tags. You are free to move them and retype them
as long as the data appears between a matching set. You may erase unused tags if you wish to remove clutter from the printed slips.
If using the tags you may use a '\' (backslash) for a line break.
You can type any information in between the tags listed below, they need not match the field definitions but are merely sequential placeholders for lettering.
<T></T> is for title
<A></A> is for author
<ED></ED> is for edition
<V></V> is for volume
<M></M> is for month
<Y></Y> is for year
<P></P> is for pages, in case of splitting a volume
<CALL></CALL> is for call number
Is found at the bottom left of the slip. This field has a relation to the tags.
If your items have a Private ID code you wish Acme to use as a cd label or as a title key
type it here. However if you have a call number but the 'Private ID' is left blank then we will
use the Call Number as the items private ID.
Place text between the paired opening and closing tags you wish to use.
Empty tags will be ignored
Use single backslashes '\' to place line breaks
All of these title 'styles' will download directly to Acme's software. Each 'style' will produce the same cover stamping
as the others. As you can see the opening tag and the closing tag must bracket the lettering. More complex Periodical Examples
are below the Monograph examples.
