who regularly check out library materials will soon
see changes to the look and type of notices that
they receive. These changes will help users to more
easily identify important messages from the library,
and to avoid fines. They will also alert the patron
that a long-awaited book on hold, or requested interlibrary
loan, is now available and awaiting pickup at the
olden days of last week, all library notices delivered
to email accounts sported a generic subject line.
Due to upgrades to the circulation software, however,
we are now able to alter the email subject line
to reflect the content of each message. No more
guessing about what you're going to find!
new type of notice has also rolled out: the "Courtesy
Notice." These are notices generated three
days before an item is due, reminding the user that
the deadline is fast approaching. Anyone who wishes
to avoid fines will now have plenty of time to return
the material. The message also
includes the link to the library web page that allows
patrons to renew any items they wish to keep (which
must be done BEFORE the item becomes overdue). What
could be easier?
the Circulation Department strongly encourages patrons
to read and respond to any email messages sent to
them by the Law Library. Failure to resolve any
outstanding problems can result in the flagging
of records or the holding of transcripts, a situation
we would all like to avoid!
