 Boxes that comprise large shipments (over 150 books) of Shelf-Ready books need to be organized before unpacking, because such shipments contain multiple invoices. Each box has a number on its label corresponding to its invoice number. ​ Boxes with the same associated invoice number should be unpacked together, in alphabetical order by title, onto book trucks. ​ The Monographic Receiver then checks each book off its invoice, but doesn'​t give the invoice to the Ordering Assistant until after all books have been received. (Although Shelf-Ready books cannot usually be returned to the vendor, there are some situations, such as missing pages found during receiving, in which they must be, and a refund or replacement sought from the vendor.) Boxes that comprise large shipments (over 150 books) of Shelf-Ready books need to be organized before unpacking, because such shipments contain multiple invoices.

-Make sure call numbers match library location code assigned. It's sometimes necessary to change the location in the holdings record and add or delete a location from a call number label. Books labeled as “SCIENCE” sometimes have a call number that indicates they should instead be shelved in the Du Bois Library, and visa versa. Consult the [[AA Chart for Cataloging to Locations As Appropriate]] to aid in determining the correct location for a book based on call number. ​+Make sure call numbers match library location code assigned.
