Text Messaging in the Online Catalog

C/W MARS introduced two new features on Monday, February 3 in the online catalog:
  • Text call number to phone --  This allows patrons or staff from the OPAC to text a call number to a cell phone.  When viewing an individual record, patrons can click on the link labeled “text” which will take them to a form to enter a cell phone and receive a text with call number and location information for the individual copy.  
     
  • Text Notices for Holds Pickup  -- Patrons can now opt to receive a text message when their hold is ready for pickup.  When placing a hold, the patron can choose to enter a cell phone number and when their hold becomes available, they will receive a text message.
Please be aware that standard text charges will apply.
