What Is An SMS Alert?

CMC Libraries now offer an SMS service so that you can receive text notifications about library materials checked out to you or received for you. What it is in a nutshell:

  • A text message which supplements other forms of notifications (phone, email, regular mail)
  • Cost depends on your cell phone provider as rates vary by plan -- it's often free!

SMS Alerts are sent when:

  • holds are available for pickup
  • borrowed items are about to become due
  • items are overdue
