OASIS Services: Processing Setup Form

Check the tabs below for information and setup options on OASIS Cataloging, Processing, Ebook/Publisher Direct Setup, and Holdings Matching services

Processing Form Link & Information

ProQuest's Processing Service provides a full range of options for all materials.  All processing is carefully done according to your specifications. 

Processing of books can include any of the following:  barcodes, barcode protectors, book plates, book pockets, date due slips, three part labels, spine labels, spine label protectors, stamping, tattle tape or RFID tags as well as programming. For outer covering of material, we can provide Mylar, Kapco and Kapco Easy Bind reinforcement (spine tape).  We also laminate (heat process) dust jackets.  For any services not listed, please ask as we may be able to accommodate.

After your processing profile form has been received, we will enter the information and send the results back to you for your final approval.  

All items will be physically processed to the approved profile and are non-returnable once completed. 

Depending on the amount of processing necessary, allow 3-7 additional days beyond expected delivery time. 

Processing Form Link Instructions

The Processing Form (here) has many options depending on what type of book processing your library needs.

  • Most of the questions are multiple choice and some offer the chance for including your own information in a short text box.  
  • If the choices are radio buttons (circles), it is a unilateral choice.  Only one option can be selected.
  • If the choices are check boxes, you may select more than one option.

It is suggested you complete the form in one session although there is an option at various sections in the form to Save and Resume.  This feature works by sending you a weblink by email that you will need to access to complete the form later.  

NOTE:  Any files you upload will NOT stay attached during a save, so you will want to upload them immediately before submitting.
