Jan. 5, 2014 – There are many cases when the library needs to notify you:
We use several methods to communicate these cases to you:
Email is our primary means of communication with our patrons. All circulation-related notices are emailed to the address shown in My Library Account. For Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff, that will be your vt.edu address. (If you'd like notices to be sent elsewhere, set a forwarding address for your PID.)
Circulation emails are sent by Addison twice a day. You can check on these circulation issues in My Library Account instead of waiting for the email.
You can also receive text messages for circulation notices. These notifications go out as soon the issue occurs, except after 10:30pm, when texts are held until 8:00am. Just go to My Library Account to opt in and configure your phone number to receive texts.
RSS is a push method of notification. You can configure an RSS reader with the URL of your library account's feed, then the reader would indicate whenever a circulation notification is waiting. Just login to My Library Account and look for the icon to copy your feed URL.
