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.
