Stacks Transfer Service

Connect to Main Stacks Transfer Service

Main Stacks Transfer Program


The Main Stacks Transfers web application takes in a location and an item barcode.  It checks the item to make sure it passes several criteria such as being in a Main Stacks location, having an appropriate item type, and having an appropriate status.  If the criteria is met, it will display a transfer slip for printing.  If not, it will have a summary of what caused an error. It should be noted that since this service uses the Voyager Report Server, all information returned is only current as of early morning on the day the program is run. So if an item is changed, it will not be reflected till the next time that the report server is updated.
