CLA today announced that Canada Post will extend the current Book Rate until January 2008. That's great, though what actually impacts my department is the last little paragraph in the press release (PDF) that reads:
Recognizing that some smaller libraries have had challenges in implementing the new electronic tools, Canada Post has also extended the deadline for libraries to convert to electronic tools from September 30, 2006 to January 15, 2007.I don't think it was the smaller libraries that have had challenges, I think it was the bigger libraries that kept finding their address books deleted! Regardless of the reason, it's great to have a little extra wiggle room to find the best way to implement the electronic shipping tools into a distance-delivery workflow!
