UPS WorldShip How-To Guide: Adding a New Address

Adding/Updating an Address for an IDS Affiliated Institution

When we update an address with an affiliated IDS number, this is typically done for EZBorrow items that we are borrowing or lending. There may be ILLiad requests that have an IDS number as well, if the request was filled through ILLiad alternatively. 

To locate the most up-to-date address information for a request with an IDS number, we can use the IDS Directory. The IDS Directory is located in the ASD One-Stop-Shop under the "Quick Links for Full-time/Part-time Satff" tab.

Step 1. Search the IDS number or Library Name depending on which information you have 

Step 2. The address information should appear. Copy & Paste the information from your search into the main UPS WorldShip page to create your shipment. **Reminder** Be sure not to copy any P.O. Boxes, and double check the Postal/Zip Code when entering a new address. These are the fields we most often are billed for.

Adding/Updating an Address for an ILLiad/OCLC Affiliated Institution

When searching for an address in ILLiad, it can be found in the OCLC Polices Directory. ILLiad is located on select devices, one being the Shipping computer in the Circulation Office.

Step 1. Once ILLiad is open and you have logged in, type the 9-digit "ILL" number for the item you are shipping into the "Number" field in the upper right corner of the main page. Be sure to select "ILL Number" as the number you are searching for. 

Step 2. Select Search. At the top of the page, you will see a globe icon reading "Policies Directory: OCLC." Select this icon. 

Step 3. Search for the institution by using their 3-digit letter code, or by the name of the institution. Select 'Search.'

Step 4. Navigate to the 'Contacts' tab on the top/right of the page. 

Step 5. Select 'Contacts.' You will see a chart of information. Scroll down to the row that reads "Shipping." This is the most up-to-date address information for the request/item you are shipping. 

Step 6. When inputting this information into UPS WorldShip, the information would go into the following fields:

  • Customer ID: YNG

  • Company or Name: Youngstown State Univ. 

  • Attention: Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

  • Address 1: 1 University Plaza

  • Postal Code: 44555

  • City or Town: Youngstown

  • State/Province/County: Ohio
