FUNDING: EFTS Award for DOCLINE Users Who Don’t Yet Participate
Here are some testimonials for those who are using the Electronic Funds Transfer System (EFTS) :
“I use EFTS everyday and when I make a request for an article, I always check the box to send my request only to EFTS libraries. Thanks so much for making the process of billing so easy. The updating process is also so smooth and effortless. Blessings on you and your service to make our life easier.”
–Cliff Nestell; Shawnee Mission Medical Center; (KSUSMK)
“EFTS has simplified the process of managing interlibrary loan charges to such an extent that when the odd interlibrary loan bill does arrive I am reminded of how seamless a process the system is. And now that our accounts are accessible through the web, account status is never a question. EFTS = one check sent to one place!”
-Denise Corless, Caritas Norwood Hospital; (MAUNOH)
“Participation in EFTS is critical for a hospital librarian short on time and resources. It basically provides an accounting system which would otherwise take many extra hours to maintain. The new web access to our account gives us ready updates on all of our transactions. It’s an invaluable service.”
–Mary Jo Dorsey, The Western Pennsylvania Hospital; (PAUWPH)
