EFTS (Electronic Funds Transfer System) Awards - Apply NOW

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

By: PJ Grier, Outreach and Access Coordinator, SE/A RML

EFTS saves time and money.

For a limited time only, the SE/A Regional Medical Library has several “starter” awards available for Full Members that are active DOCLINE libraries. Starter funds are in the amount of $200.00, for non-EFTS libraries. Current EFTS library members may request $100.00 to continue their participation in the program and affirm their ongoing resource sharing efforts. If approved, funds will be deposited into an EFTS account under your DOCLINE LIBID (Library ID) symbol. Even better, there is no time limit in which the funds must be used. To find more information about the benefits of joining EFTS, go to: https://efts.uchc.edu/common/index.aspx.  You will also find a sample (“ROI”) quantitative analysis that shows the dollar savings derived from converting to EFTS, if you need to prove value with finance leadership of your institution.

The electronic EFTS award application is painless and takes just minutes to complete. Why not start enjoying the benefits and ease of EFTS by joining the electronic processing initiative like so many fellow DOCLINE libraries?  Questions about EFTS can be directed to efts@uchc.edu, or 860-679-4500.
