Purpose: To process for payment the annual Ebsco invoice(s) for print/print + online journal titles. Also to create invoice binder.
The Ebsco Renewal process is generally completed by the end of August and submitted in the first 10 days of September. Ebsco will send the subsequent annual invoice(s) some time in late October or early November.
The print invoice usually consists of approximately 4 sequentially numbered invoices submitted in loose-leaf form with a listing of all titles. Darling Center titles are included with the Orono titles. Ebsco sends only one copy of the invoice.
Place paper sheets in loose-leaf binder, using colored sheets to mark the end of individual invoices to readily find subtotals.
Spot checking of entries is made, especially of those titles that have been added or canceled for the new fiscal year.
Prepare a listing of invoices and their totals for the front pocket of the binder.
Individual order records will have paylines disseminated via the EDI process. In order to cut a single payment check the invoices, will need to be processed against four artificial order records in Millennium. The order records are as follows:
Prior to payment, notify the library Financial Manager of amount so that she can alert the campus Business Office to have the funds available for the check. Copy Head of Collections and Head of Technical Services.
Once the interface has gone through the invoices will then need to be Z'd (See If there is a Z invoice to be entered section of the Invoice procedure for complete details on how to enter Z invoices) so that the dollar amounts are not doubled in URSUS.
