Delivery Network List

Looking for the Delivery website? You're in the right place!

The SCLS Delivery website has a new look. The Delivery Network List and our other content is still here -- use the navigation links on the right to get around the site.

Though we've merged our website with the main SCLS site, our physical locations have not changed! Please continue to use ZZZ when addressing items to SCLS Delivery.

More ways to navigate the list

The Delivery Network Listing alphabetically lists all libraries in Wisconsin which currently maintain a delivery connection through the Wisconsin Libraries' Delivery Network.  This includes all school districts, academic and special libraries, Wisconsin government agencies, and correctional institutions. 

Modifications to the list are made as they are received.  Corrections, additions, deletions, or other changes can be sent to Tim Drexler. For the latest changes, please visit the SCLS Delivery Service blog, where you can browse the archived "Delivery Network Change" posts.

Items for libraries which are not included in the Delivery Network List must be mailed.  Such items sent through the delivery network will be returned to the sending library for further processing.

Routing label summary

All items sent via the Wisconsin Libraries' Delivery Network must be labelled with the following routing information legibly and prominently displayed:

  • Route To: (system delivery hub) - 2nd table column
  • For: (delivery network member) - 1st table column
  • Date: (date put into delivery)
  • From: (library putting item into delivery)
  • Notes

A printable version of the SCLS Delivery ILL ("pink") label (PDF) is available for use by ILL staff. The file is in PDF format and contains form fields to allow routing information to be entered electronically and then printed using Adobe Acrobat Reader.  The file can also be downloaded and saved for later use, although changes will not be saved. A version of the same label file without form fields (PDF) is also available.

Routing Labels for Schools

Many Wisconsin school districts (though not all) maintain delivery network connections through their local public library system.  These schools may receive direct delivery from the system delivery service, or they may have a delivery connection through their local public library.  In both cases, the delivery routing label should include the following information:

  • Route To: (system delivery hub) - 2nd table column
  • For: (school or school district name) - 1st table column
  • Date: (date put into delivery)
  • From: (library putting item into delivery)

Where applicable, the following additional pieces of routing information should be included in the "Notes" fields of the routing label:

  • "via ________ PL" for schools that have a delivery connection through a local public library.  The "via ________ PL" information is listed in the Delivery Schedule column of the network listing table for schools with this type of connection.
  • School Name (if available)
  • Staff member or room number (if available or needed)

Other States

MINITEX provides delivery service to select libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, which are connected to the Wisconsin Libraries' Delivery Service Network.  Refer to the list of libraries on the MINITEX courier network to determine if you can send or return an item to MINITEX via SCLS Delivery.  If you have an item to send to a library but can not find the library in the MINITEX Delivery Network, then you must find another means of shipment, i.e. US Postal Service or commercial parcel/courier services.
